This vivid, cherry-scented blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah hails from the obscure appellation of Mentrida, which is nestled in the foothills of Sierra de Gredos, just west of Madrid. Grown organically and fermented with wild yeasts, this is super elegant and bright on the palate, and shows a sassy, high-toned expression of Grenache not typically seen in Spain. Subtle notes of fresh pine and rosemary add an intriguing layer of complexity to this very unique wine which spent 10 months in neutral barrel.
