Bodega Marañones is located in San Martín de Valdeiglesias, a sub-region of the Vinos de Madrid DO. Young winemaker Fernando ‘Fer’ Garcia has been heavily influenced by the biodynamic wines of the Loire and Burgundy, so it is no great surprise that his old vine Garnacha, Syrah and Albillo wines have a balanced freshness and sense of place.

The vineyards are aged between 30-80 years old and are farmed organically across 5 different parcels. Whole bunch fermentation in open top barrels started off by natural yeasts influence the style of wine greatly and both wines are a pure expression of the variety and terroir. Undoubtably one of Spain s most talented up and coming winemakers, Fernando is also a partner with Daniel Landi in Comando G.

This is a Garnacha-based blend from four different parcels of old vines grown on weathered granitic soils, it was fermented in 3.000 and 4.500 liters wooden tanks, using native yeast and then aged for 8 months in French oak barrels, plus 2 months in 4,500 litre oak tanks.

'This is pale ruby in the glass. The nose is perfumed with gariguette strawberries white blossom and a hint of vanilla. A very pretty and intriguing wine displaying also fine herbs. Medium bodied on the palate with medium, pleasantly 'grippy', almost chalky tannins. Also the palate is layered, with peppery spice. A versatie and deliclious wine!' Anja Breit, Philglas & Swiggot
