This wine is jovial and young, it’s the pure essence of fresh red berries. Garnacha in this form, pale, fresh and mineral, is Spain’s great red grape and bears a resemblance to Pinot Noir. Fernando Garcia is quoted as saying: “The three of us have a certain weakness for Burgundy Pinot Noir and we are convinced that our Garnachas can produce equally elegant wines as long as you look after the grapes and harvest early”.
La Bruja is made from the grapes grown in two vineyards located in Cadalso de los Vidrios in Madrid which together add up to 2.5 hectares of granite soils, planted with 50 to 80-year old vines. The grapes from both vineyards are fermented and aged separately in wooden vats, using native yeasts and gentle maceration processes. Ageing takes place in French oak, first in 25-hL vats and then in 500-litre barrels, over a total of five months, which produces 5,000 bottles.
