Pegaso Granito, Castilla y Leon, Telmo Rodriguez, Spain 2010
About this wine
Telmo Rodriguez makes wines all over Spain, specialising in restoring ancient abandoned vineyards. The Pegaso wines come from 60 to 80 year old bush vine Grenache grown at 1200 metres above sea level on granite and slate in the village of Cebreros near Avila. The combination of such a harsh climate, the concentration from old vines and fresh minerality from the soils produces a beautifully perfumed wine with pure red fruit, floral and spice notes. As ever with Telmo's wines there is elegance,balance, silky texture and gently managed oak. Joy in a glass.
