Characteristics of El Rincón
El Rincón is a red wine from the Vinos de Madrid D.O region. It is produced by the Pagos Marqués de Griñón winery and is a blend of 2 grape varieties, Syrah (95%) and Garnacha (5%).
The grapes come from vineyards that were planted in 2000 and occupy 9 hectares. They are situated in the Aldea de Fresno zone in the Community of Madrid. The vines grow in soil that is contains granite, as well as clay.
The harvest is carried out manually, with any bunches that are too large, or leaves being removeds as these block lighting, this is to ensure proper ripening.
The grapes are then destemmed and deposited and placed in fermentation tanks. The maceration process lasts for around 4 weeks.
El Rincón is then aged for a period of 10 months in new or semi-new French oak barrels from Allier. This wine is neither filtered nor clarified before bottling, we therefore recommend that you decant this wine before serving.
Serve at 15ºC

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.
