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.

This is really very floral on the nose, where dark pot pourri meets dark cherry and combines to form something a touch meaty and showing piquant spice. It goes in the mouth plush, but quickly attracts upright and significant tannic support. A long thing and highly grippy, this is really quite backward in the mouth; really quite serious, too. This has something distinctly burgundian in its elegance and class. Bowes Wine original note
“The palate has depth and is layered, with fine tannins and a texture that somewhat makes me think of the wines from slate soils in Gredos, even if this is not the case here.” 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.
