Bodegas Bernabeleva is in the centre of Spain, a stone’s throw west of Madrid At the feet of the Cerro de Guisando and Gredos mountains this winery lets its vines stretch out their roots through the thin infertile sandy soils, formed from decomposed granite, to cling on to life. Four generations have tended these old hardy vines that have repaid the care and attention with quality fruit hand harvested from the organically managed vineyards. Plots of Garnacha, Albillo and Moscatel de Grano Menudo are vinified separately, neither fined nor filtered to ensure that both the land and love shown shine through. All plots are vinified separately and reds macerated for 30 days before both red and white are aged in mostly old French oak.
An easy to drink wine with beautiful aromatics of fresh lavender and wild berries. The palate is lively with bright acidity and there’s plenty of rich juicy dark fruit in the finish with super fine tannins.
Garnet colour with pale red rim, ripe black fruit and liquorice. Strong saline and mineral notes, firm tannins that are evolving. A big wine with genuine terroir expression lifted by the granite minerality.
Floral, stone fruits with orange blossom peeking through. Bright, fresh, hints of minerality... this wine doesn't dissapoint! Tiny quantity produced, get it while you can.
Wild sweet berry fruit dominate the nose, with hints of spice, herb, graphite and salinity. A silky smooth entry leads on to full bodied flavours of sweet cherry, raspberry and nutmeg. Despite the big flavours this is still lovely and fresh, with a long finish and fine tannins.
This blend offers up a nose of fresh pear, olive, saline hints and dried flowers. Full-bodied and focused, with a lovely centre, minerality and grip, excellent acidity and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish.
