Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of La Bruja de Rozas, a smashing Spanish red wine from the DO Vinos de Madrid which was formerly known as La Bruja Avería.

A single varietal Grenache produced by the Comando G winery, it is made from 30 to 80-year-old vineyards, coming from three estates perched at 900 metres of altitude. They are located near the town of Las Rozas de Puerto Real, in the midst of Sierra de Gredos, an area which has risen to super-stardom in just a few years.

Each plot was separately harvested and vinified. Fermentation and maceration took place in wooden vats, with indigenous yeasts and gentle macerations. Once this red wine from Madrid was blended, it was aged for 7 months in 500-litre French oak barrels.

Aerate La Bruza de Rozas 2018 30 minutes before drinking.

35,000 bottles produced.

Appearance

The red wine La Bruja de Rozas by Fernando García (Bodegas Marañones) and Daniel Jiménez Landi has an intense cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Expressive, lively and delicate, this red wine from Gredos smells of red berries, flowers and spices, over a delicate background of dimly toasted aniseed, fennel and mineral. The nose of this Grenache from Madrid feels free, expansive, and pure.

Palate

Amazingly fresh and nicely textured, with a medium body which exhilarates the palate with remembrances of wild berries, aromatic herbs and some toasted and floral nuances. Crisp and linear, with delicious tannins and a superb acidity. This wine by Comando G has a long finish with some mineral and balsamic remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A wine which goes from strength to strength, this Grenache from Gredos delivers gobsmacking quality for money. Enjoy La Bruja de Rozas 2018 with meat, cheese or without food.
