La Bruja de Rozas 2018

La Bruja de Rozas 2018

La Bruja de Rozas 2018 is the introductory Grenache  by Comando G in Sierra de Gredos. A delicious and refreshing red wine made from a selection of 6 small plots planted with 40-year-old Garnacha Tinta vines. They grow on granite soils in Rozas de Puerto Real, Madrid. A fantastic and delicate wine, perfect to be served in a Bourgogne glass.



La Bruja de Rozas 2018 is made with Grenache from Rozas de Puerto Real (Madrid) - organically grown - from the Entrepinos, Nebillo, Arroyo Mingo and Navapark plots. These plots extend over 13 hectares, are situated at an altitude of 850 and 900 metres, and have granite, sand and silt soils. The harvest took place from September 14th to 31st, after a vintage very similar to 2016, since everything was in its place and gave rise to a fresh wine, with good tension, balance and minerality. Fermentation was carried out by plots in open oak vats with soft macerations, without using pumps and with indigenous yeasts. After aging for 9 months in foudres of between 15 and 60 hectoliters, the wine was bottled without clarifying or filtering.
TASTING NOTES (Published in El Club de February 2020)
La Bruja de Rozas 2018 has a beautiful very bright pale garnet colour. On the nose it is seductive, with intense notes of forest fruits such as cassis, currant and raspberry accompanied by light balsamic and fresh aromas such as laurel and eucalyptus, and a delicate floral note of violet. On teh palate it is like a currant juice, elegant and tasty, with a texture composed of ethereal and soft tannins accompanied by a great freshness that invites you to take a second sip. At the end the aromas of raspberry persist with a slight hint of spice and caramel. A very fresh red that thanks to its fruit character will be the ideal companion for appetizers, cold cuts, cold cuts, stewed poultry and creamy goat cheeses. To be enjoyed from now on and for the next two years - served slightly fresh - between 14 and 16ºC in the Chianti glass from the Vinum de Riedel series (6416/15) or in the Old World Pinot Noir from the Veritas de Riedel series (449 / 07).

"La Bruja de Rozas 2018 is a village wine, from Rozas de Puerto Real, which expresses the feeling of the village with the red fruit of wild strawberry, red cherry, pomegranate and granite soil. Fluidity, very drinkable and freshness ”, they comment from the winery.
