Location Notes: A combination of estate owned fruit and purchased. All the fruit comes from bush trained vines in very small plots around the San Martín de Valdeiglesias area. San Martín de Valdeiglesias lies at the northwestern corner of the Viños de Madrid appellation. Located at a high elevation, with deep sandy soils, it produces wines unlike anything else in the Madrid region.
Winemaking Notes: Juice macerates for 25 days with some whole clusters. Fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel, concrete and large, neutral wood vats. Wine is not fined nor filtered. Wine is aged primarily in old wooden vats.
Tasting Notes: Camino de Navaherreros is full of spicy raspberry and cherry and hints of rose petal on the nose. The palate is racy showing red fruit, spice, mineral, and brisk acidity. This is a beautiful expression of no-frills, old-vine Garnacha. Year in and year out this tiny boutique winery produces some of the most sought after Garnacha in the country.
