A Glamorous Spanish King!

El glam
A funky drop with a touch of glamour! This is a smooth 100% Garnacha (Grenache) from the vast land Castilla y Leon, Spain. Only 600 bottles were produced in 2013, so be quick to grab one while it lasts. The grapes came from the Peñafiel high country of Ribera del Duero and Sierra del Gredos west of Madrid. It’s unwooded without wild yeast fermentation and filtration. It’s very light but full bodied with striking strawberry aromas. The wine maker, Alfredo Maestro, is renowned for being daring and producing original wines. The label pays tribute to the glamorous scene of the 70’s and early 80’s. At the time too there was a glamorous Spanish alternative rock band called ‘El Rey del Glam’ that Alfredo may have been fond of. The funny cartoonish label personifies alegría (happiness) de la vida (of life) and this wine surely reflects it! You can find this wine at:
