Characteristics of El Hombre Bala
El Hombre Bala is a wine from Madrid prepared by the Comando G winery in collaboration with Uvas Felices. It is a varietal Grenache.
The grapes used for this wine comes from vineyards between 50 and 90 years of age distributed over four farms in three villages that are west of Madrid. We refer to Cadalso de los Vidrios, Cenicientos and Rozas de Puerto Real
The agriculture that takes place is biodynamic and fully respects the environment. The vines grow on granitic soil at an altitude of around 1000 metres. The climate of the area is harsh, maturation is balanced and wines obtained are fresh and elegant.
The grapes are destemmed and maceration takes place at low temperature for about 30 days. Fermentation occurs in barrels and wooden vats at controlled temperatures. The subsequent aging, which lasts 10 months, takes place in French oak barrels with a capacity of 400 and 700 litres.
G Comando reflects the G in Grenache. The project aims to produce wines from old Grenache vines from the Sierra de Gredos.

Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
