Comando G La Bruja de Rozas

Comando G La Bruja de Rozas 2018

SpainComando G is a partnership of minds, mates and winemakers Fernando GarcĂ­a and Dani Landi. La Bruja de Rosas is their village wine, sourced from numerous vineyards around Las Rozas de Puerto Real in Castilla y Leon, between 900-1200m altitude, and from granitic sands. Organically and biodynamically farmed 50-80 year old garnacha vines is native fermented with a lengthy maceration, followed by nine months in oak vats. Pouring a transparent crimson hue, this opens with ample wild scrubby florals, medicinal cherry, kirsch, wild strawberry jam. Tannins are sticky and acidity is lofty, both helping draw this youthful red to a lightly warming, sasparilla-scented close. This is a ballerina hippo, with much heft and girth (14.5), but surprising lightness on its feet. For drinking now, with a slight chill.Tasted: 15 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 45.00 private wine shops Producer: Comando GDistributors: Sur Lie
