We're thrilled to list this exciting modern Spanish Garnacha, produced high up in the mountains to the south west of Madrid. We were blown away when we recently visited the ancient vineyards and tasted this very special wine - a Garnacha like no other! Spain is having a Garnacha revolution, and this exceptional example is leading the way thanks to a comination of superb vineyard location at 950 meters, ancient bushvines cultivated naturally in deep sandy soils over granite, large day to night temperature variations and a careful 'hands-off' winemaking approach from Daniel Landi ('his wines are just so exceptionally good' - Jancis Robinson) and Fernado Garcia - two trailblazing spanish winemakers currently making a big name for themselves. 

 

Taking their name from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, Bodegas Comando G are winemakers Fernando Garcia and Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi together with renowned Spanish wine Merchants, Vila Viniteca. As part of their ‘Uvas Felices’ (Happy Grapes) project, they bring wines from old Garnacha vines to life. The wines are made from incredibly old vines (50 to 90 years) from low-yielding granitic vineyards skirting the high mountain forests in the Sierra de Gredos hills, south west of Madrid. Despite the searing 40 degree heat in which they’ve grown, gentle treatment and nurturing helps the grapes to become the most lifted, ethereal, beautiful Garnacha!
