Inspired by Spain's largely untapped fine wine resources, friends, colleagues and Masters of Wine, Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke set off on a journey to find the unsung heroes of Spain, be they regions, growers or winemakers. Fergal's interest in wine terroirs and Giles' instincts for flavour, led them to unearth great Spanish wines whose stories were untold. Mago y Granjero represents their discoveries - each wine is the result of a long journey. Each wine is hand made. Each wine reflects the personality of the land and the subtle imprint of man in varying degrees.
Only selected, low yielding, un-irrigated vineyards are used for the Más Buscados wines. Green Harvest is vital in order to get the fruit concentration that sets the wines apart as is harvesting by hand at optimal ripeness.
Cold soaks, extended maceration, differing temperatures at fermentation, inert gas and rigorous hygiene in the cellar combine to preserve the beautiful freshness of the fruit that can sometimes be lost in the "old world"
Ruby red colour with violet tints showing its youth. On the nose it is fresh and elegant with characteristic aromas of cherry and red fruits typical of this variety. Light, harmonic and round on the palate with soft tannins.
