Characteristics of Kaos
Kaos is a red wine, V.T. Castilla y León, produced by BodegasCanopy.
BodegasCanopy is a young winery (2003), located between two mountain ranges, Sierra de Gredos and Sierra de Guadarrama, in the valley of the Alberche river. Canopy was created with the aim of making wines from the best raw material, with minimum intervention in the winery, to show all the expression of the variety and the personality of the terroir where it is born.
BodegasCanopy currently has 19 hectares planted with Syrah and Grenache. Old vineyards located at high altitudes that they wanted to recover using organic agriculture, with minimum intervention. This would allow the silica-granitic soils to fully express themselves, achieving quality wines.
The climate in this area is extremely continental, with long and cold winters, somewhat moderated by the mountain range Sierra de Gredos, which acts as a natural barrier against cold northern and western winds. Summers are hot and rainfall is quite scarce. The large temperature fluctuations between seasons are perfect for the ripening of the grapes.
Kaos is a wine made from Grenache, from vineyards located in Cebreros, steep hills with slate soils, planted with vines that are over 60 years old.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. When the grapes arrive at the winery, they go through cold pre-fermentation maceration for 15 days. After this and a gentle stomping, the whole grapes ferment with native yeasts. The malolactic fermentation takes place spontaneously in 500-litre French oak barrels, where it will remain for 18 months.
Kaos is an intense, complex and elegant wine. The aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with notes of orange peel. In the mouth it is voluminous but easy to drink, with a mineral background that makes it very long lasting.

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.
