Las Moradas de San Martín Albillo Real 2020

Vinos de Madrid, Castilla-La Mancha, SpainEstablished in 1999, Las Moradas de San Martín was established to recover the centuries-old vineyards of Garnacha that had been cultivated there since the 12th century. Located in the hilltops of Pago de los Castillejos, they benefit from its altitude and granitic / volcanic soils, imbuing a natural freshness and minerality. Winemaker Isabel Galindo farms organically / biodynamically. This is entirely Albillo Real, destemmed and native fermented, with 1/4 MLF, aged 6 months in 300 and 500 L French barrels. The creamy, waxen base is laden with hazelnut, marcona almond, flax, crushed stone, and meadow grass, finely textured along the medium palate, finishing with a raft of mineral salts and ample almond. Lovely energy and verve here.Tasted: 31 August 2022Tasted by: Prices:
