45+ year old vines. 100% Grenache. Long pre-ferment maceration. 3 months in French oak. Vibrant blueberry and floral notes, wonderful acidity, buttery tannins.
In terms of colour, burgundy red with medium intensity, clear and bright.
On the nose, notes of fruits (blueberries), flowers and earth, undergrowth, fresh aromatic herbs give the wine a surprising nose reminiscent of the forest.
In the mouth, its refreshing notes makes it hard to turn down another glass. It has good acidity and nice structure, as well as smooth and pleasant tannins. Chocolate notes.
A vibrant wine with a persistent retronasal aroma and a flavourful finish.
Founded in 2004 by Belarmino Fernandez and Alfonso Chacon, Canopy has (quite unassumingly) played a significant role in helping the wider world to appreciate what the 'New Spain' is capable of – Michel Bettane even went so far as to acknowledge them as 'architects of the Spanish renassiance'. Belarmino and Alfonso are self-confessed 'terroir obsessives', driven by a desire to bottle the unique characteristics of their little corner of Sierra de Gredos.
All the wines are foot-trodden and sulphur is kept to an absolute minimum. The philosophy is fundamentally sustainable and organic in practice, but not to the point of certification nor is it bound by particular strictures. As Alfonso puts it, 'There's no need to use alternative vine growing methods like biodynamics. We can make honest wines in Gredos; we only need what nature gives us. Soils, landscape and Garnacha's clonal diversity are really interesting. You get wines that smell of thyme, lavender… the kind of plants that grow around here”.
In 2018, Bodegas Canopy launched Ganadero, a refreshingly fun 100% Grenache red wine, which is complex yet easy drinking. Its incessant search for interesting vineyards that leave their mark on its wines provided the basis for this young red wine. It’s a single-varietal wine aged three months in French oak barrels, born of an undulating terrain composed of sandy soils. Old vines more than 45 years old on sandy soil.
A wine with personality and a powerful image geared towards the international market.
The label depicts one of the most recognized icons of Spanish culture abroad—the bull—while giving the traditional image a refresh by portraying it as a farmer; a bit of silliness (or chimera) that is a playful nod to the animal, which is shown on the label to be modern, elegant and the master of its own destiny.
