Sierra de Gredos SPAIN
A medium bodied wine with great freshness and firm tannins which contribute to the long finish.
The Sistema Central mountain range has been 25 million years in the making and forms the backbone of the Iberian Penisula. A sprawling system crowned by the towering grandeur of Pico Almanzor at 2,592 metres, it boasts some of the oldest and most interesting soil types for grape growing in Spain. Unsurprisingly it has a rich and diverse heritage of grape growing and winemaking. The combination of soil type (blue granite), high altitude sites and old vines mean the quality potential in these areas is phenomenal. In addition, they sustain a number of unusual varieties most of which arent planted anywhere else in Spain.
