"The 2021 Fuente de los Huertos Garnacha is a single-vineyard Garnacha from 60-year-old vines on granite and quartz-rich soils with a northeast exposition at 800 meters in altitude in the village of San Martín de Valdeiglesias. The full clusters fermented with indigenous yeasts and had a three-month maceration in plastic bins. It matured in well-seasoned, 3,000-liter oak foudres for 12 months. It has 15.4% alcohol and a pH of 3.3, denoting freshness. Furthermore, the alcohol is not noticeable at all. This is spectacular, their finest wine to date. It is perfumed, floral and elegant, with energy and coolness from the year, the northeast exposure and the granite soils. There’s an ethereal quality, bright and light but with lots of grip. A true bargain at this price. They filled 3,000 bottles in December 2022, and the remaining 700 liters should be bottled into some 1,000 more bottles in a second lot."
