Having started a project in 2013 in Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Curro Barreño and Jesús Olivares wanted to explore old vines on the granitic slopes of the Gredos Mountains. They are reviving Garnacha, Albillo and Moscadel vineyards (30-80yrs) at high altitude, 700-850mtrs. Winemaking is low-fi and with indigenous yeasts and whole bunches, at low temperatures to favour a gentle extraction of colour and phenolics.

N.B. This is grown on granite and quartz at 750 metres. Aromas are distinctly floral (I imagined daffodils), with the pear fruit being complicated by scents of spice and nut. This has a touch of bitterness: something altogether indicative of the variety. And there is a wisp of tannin in its structure. Yet it is a very long wine that has a great deal of dimension at its ending, which is piquant with its mineral freshness. A delicious and fascinating wine. There are only 400 bottles for the world, so grab some now while you can! Bowes Wine original note
“It has a balanced palate, with volume and freshness. The palate feels very complete, compact and layered…” Luis Gutierrez
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
