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.
