Valautin Garnacha

Vinos de Madrid (Gredos)

The village Garnacha comes from multiple micro-vineyards planted around the village of Valdeiglesias on top of shallow soils of decomposed granite (650-750 meters). The wine is made from a very long and soft maceration, around 90 days, with whole-clusters and aged one year in half in concrete and half in used French barrels.

"The red 2021 Valautín Garnacha is a village wine from San Martín de Valdeiglesias, as they used grapes from many small plots of old vines. It's not a shy or light wine at 15.1% alcohol, and it has good freshness and acidity. The full clusters fermented with indigenous yeasts and had three months of maceration, followed by malolactic in old foudres and 10 months of élevage in a 10,500-liter French oak foudre. The wine is super aromatic, floral, elegant and perfumed, and the medium-bodied palate has a lot of grip, with the chalkiness and dry sensation from the granite soils and a very tasty, almost salty finish. The oak is imperceptible, the extraction is moderate and the wine is elegant but with grip. 2021 was a great vintage for them. 14,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2022."
