Viñedos del Jorco 'El Jorco', Cebreros, Spain 2019
If the name Raúl Pérez is familiar to you, then you already know that purchasing this wine is a no brainer. The grapes are from the Gredos zone just outside of Madrid, focusing on high elevation Garnacha in what is the now separate DO of Cebreros. This area is called the ‘Garnacha Belt’ and it is one of the most exciting and unique viticultural areas of Spain, and is capable of producing wines that showcase the Pinot Noir-like side of Grenache, with fine, high-toned, mineral-infused red fruits, and an elegance and finesse.
Pairing: grilled salmon or trout, pulled pork, drink with a light chill.
