Characteristics of Canopy Tres Patas
Canopy Tres Patas is a red wine from D.O. Méntrida, produced in Bodegas Canopy. This is a young winery that carries out organic agriculture, with minimum intervention, allowing the siliceous-granitic soils to fully express themselves and achieve quality wines.
The climate in this area is extreme continental, with long cold winters, slightly tempered by the mountain range Sierra de Gredos, which acts as a natural barrier against the cold winds from the north and the west. Summers are warm, and rainfall is very scarce. The large seasonal temperature variation is perfect to ripen the grapes.
Canopy Tres Patas comes from five Grenache plots located in different areas of Real de San Vicente, with vines that go from 58 to 62 years old. The whole grape bunches ferment in 1500-litre vats. The wine is refined in different sized barrels.
Canopy Tres Patas is a juicy and fresh wine. The presence of acid fruit balances the maturity of the ageing.

Méntrida, like other famous wine regions of La Mancha, is steeped in history. The vines here grow under bright blue Castilian skies in a landscape which enjoys spectacular views of the snowy mantle of the Sierra de Gredos. The character of the wines produced here, tough and honest, were always enjoyed by the Habsburg Dynasty in Madrid. That being said, a new generation of wine is emerging, albeit at a slower rate than other regions in Spain, renovating wineries with modern equipment with a generation of young winemakers who are producing pleasant and balanced wines, some have even managed to recover the local flavour of its wines using the classic earthenware jars, now appreciated and fashionable in other areas.
Canopy is a young winery focused on the rediscovery of the old terroir of Méntrida as the origin of unique wines. It is a reference to the terroir, to wines created from the vineyard, at 750 metres of altitude, in the Sierra de San Vicente, between the valleys of rivers Tajo and Tietar. These vines are subject to a beneficial micro-climate that truly shows at night, when the temperatures go down and the aromas are set in the old Grenache vines, alongside modern Syrah plantations, just like authentic vine gardens, perfectly adjusted to a hard and demanding region.
