Pegaso Sierra de Gredos 2018 Zeta Garnacha

This reminds us of the more lifted California styles of Grenache with aromas of bright red berries towards raspberries, some spice, black flowers, and a granitic minerality. The palate is just shy of moderate in weight with good acid and more black fruits intermixing with bright red berries, oak spice, and just there pepper and minerals. D&M Tasting Notes

Sierra de Gredos is the mountainous region located on the continental divide of Spain. It is a transitional zone where Northern Spain gives way to Southern Spain. The wines from the Sierra de Gredos mountains to the west of Madrid (aka Vinos de Madrid) have finally begun to claim their rightful place alongside other top wine regions focussed on producing world-class garnacha (grenache). For many insiders, the region is now considered to be leading the conversation with regard to the potential of this Mediterranean grape, now understood to be indigenous to Spain. Yet, few U.S. drinkers know the origin story of this remote region, a place which the writer/philosopher Miguel de Unamuno described as "the roof of Castile and the stone heart of Spain."

Zeta is the entry-level from 890-920m at the entry into Cebreros. Produced with 100% traditional, EU organic, bush-trained garnacha vines. The slate and granite soils are blended, giving depth and fruit character to this wine. Vineyards: El Robledillo, El Mojón, Presidente. Hand-picked grapes with a native yeasts fermentation in 500L French barrels of different origins and ages. 9 months in foudre, steel tanks, and 500L barrels for blending and added élevage.
