About the Wine

Absolutely solid Spanish red from old vines at high altitude in the Sierra de Gredos, just outside the raised plateau of Madrid. The G here standing not just for Gredos, but also for the eponymous Garnacha that is the focus of this project. Bruja (the witch of Rozas) is a wine that absolutely flies off the shelf at the shop, and for good reason. The wine poses incredibly good bang for buck.

This is classified as their 'village wine', but the quality is extremely high, and if you don't want to take our word for it then perhaps that totem of validation, Jancis Robinson, will convince you: "It has such seductive fruit – juicy but ethereal, sweet but in a Pinot Noir-like way rather than a sickly way – and also a very fine, sandy texture that seems to communicate the granitic sand on which these ancient Garnacha bush vines are grown."

Made with 100% Garnacha from granatic sand, the grapes are hand harvested and undergo spontaneous fermentation in open vats before ageing in old French oak barrels for 5 months. A wonderfully expressive, vibrant wine full of subtle sweet red fruits and a touch of spice, all balanced out with a line of acidity and pronounced mineral backbone.
