James Sucklings No1 Spanish Red Wine of 2020!!
Fernando, Daniel and Marc became friends when they
met at university in 2005. Within 3 years, they launched
Bodega Comando G, where they aimed to further their
passion for making wines which capture and express
the terroir of very particular plots of land. The G in their
collective name stands for Garnacha, the Spanish grape
varietal that they believe can produce the country’s most
elegant wines when cultivated correctly. Their production
focusses on the sub-region of Sierra de Gredos, just north of Madrid, where the trio search for plots of ancient vines
which they believe can produce fresh, unique wines.
‘La Bruja’ consists of grapes from 50-80 year old vines based
on granite soils, which are then fermented using wild
yeasts before spending around five months in French oak.
The resultant wine is young, fresh and playful, acting as a
fantastic introduction to the potential of Garnacha from this
intriguing, up-and coming sub-region.
