100% Garnacha produced from 90 years old vines in Gredos, Castilla La Mancha. Organic farming. It fermented with 100% full clusters. It matured in a 2,000-liter French oak vat for 18 months. 2,150 bottles produced.
This red wine has the freshness of the high altitude. It's subtle, elegant and nuanced, with more red fruit than black. This has superb balance, very fine tannins and vibrant acidity, it's high-pitched and makes you salivate. This is elegant and supple, complete and harmonious. This is approachable now, but it should develop nicely with time in bottle.
By reason of our passion for wine and the desire to give the Méntrida P.D.O. the places it deserves, Bodegas Canopy started out on its journey in November 2003. Founders Belarmino Fernández and Alfonso Chacón began a search for old Grenache grapevines on which to build their dream: envisioning wine from the perspective of grape vines and conveying their uniqueness in the glass.
It was North of the Méntrida P.D.O. (Toledo), specifically in El Real de San Vicente, which is in the southern foothills of the Sierra de Gredos—where we found old Grenache vineyards at an altitude of between 750 and 900 meters above sea level, with head-trained spur-pruned vines on granite soils with ages ranging from 60 to 95 years.
We're a young winery bent on rediscovering the historical terroir and wines of Méntrida. By engaging in organic farming and showing absolute respect for the grapes, we produce wines from the viewpoint of grapevines. Our minimally invasive winemaking techniques let our silicon-granite soils express themselves to the fullest, ensuring that mastering and elegance go hand in hand to produce unique wines.
At Canopy, we firmly believe that the old Grenache grapevines mark the terroir, becoming our differentiating factor. This is why we pour all our efforts into emphasizing the unique character of the wines from the Sierra de Gredos.
