About

About The Wine

This wine combines Alfredo Maestro's two pet varieties, Garnacha and Tempranillo.

He has farmed this 30+-year-old vineyard organically since 2002. Dry established bush vines on top of sand and clay sit over 600m above sea level. The fruit is brough in in two picks, up to three weeks apart.

After wild ferments and a brief stint in seasoned oak, the final wine is spicy and showing red and black fruits, fine tannin and a freshness rarely seen in red wines from this part of the world.

About Maestro Tejero

Alfredo Maestro makes some seriously excellent, expressive, and inexpensive wines from his home in Ribera del Duero.

Defying the conventions and regulations of his region, Alfredo is a self-taught grape-grower and winemaker who learnt how to make wine straight out of a textbook. After a few years of seeing the wines made by classic methods, with adjustments and additives, he threw the textbook away and pursued a more unadulterated, natural way of making wine.

That proved to be a great decision with his wines find plenty of fans across the planet for their raw drinkability and irreverence. These are stripped back Spanish Garnacha with plenty of attitude.

Additional Info

From The Producer

50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha, Vinos de Madrid region. “A dos tiempos” translates as "at two times", describing the nature of the harvest. The first pick occurred early in the season, just a few days after veraison, while the second was at full ripeness in the second week of September. On both separate occasions, the grapes were picked by hand, destemmed and crushed immediately after picking. Fermentation was natural, in stainless steel tanks with daily pump-overs, no corrections or additions, and a maceration of 25 days. After malo the wine was racked to French oak, where it resided peacefully to settle and clarify naturally with the help of gravity. Assemblage was immediately before bottling, with the focus on the balanced combination of freshness, ripeness, soft fruit and tannins.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
