Characteristics of Congo
Congo 2009 is made of a selection of the best bunches of Grenache from 50-year-old vines planted at 750 m altitude in the South of the mountains of Gredos (D.O. Méntrida). A red wine full of nuances, which moved us with its personality and singular character, with its excellent and controlled contribution of oak, which complements the notes of red fruit.

SightRed ruby colour with light violet nuances. Clean and bright. Thin and beautiful light tears.NoseVery personal, complex and different, highly intense nasal aromas. Its notes of crispy red fruit are released along with nice floral hints. Little by little, some milky notes appear along with hints of candies, spices, balsamic nuances and mineral, subtle toasted and smoked touches.TasteIn the mouth, this is a medium-bodied wine with a light and joyful mid palate. It is dynamic and crispy. It shows a great acidity and delicate ripe tannins. It is a round, elegant, subtle and defined fresh wine. Delicious.
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.
