Characteristics of Las Umbrías

Las Umbrías is a red wine made by Comando G in Sierra de Gredos, in Madrid.
Comando G is a project for the recuperation of old abandoned Grenache vines. Hence the name Comando G. G for Grenache.
Las Umbrías is a single variety Grenache, grown in a small plot that is difficult to access, situated at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level.
The climate, very difficult for the vines at this altitude, enables the grapes to have a balanced ripening so that they become fresh and elegant wines.
The vineyards are east facing, with granite soil, sand and clay on the surface.

Comando G practices its agriculture based on the principles of biodynamic with a lot of respect for the environment.
Las Umbrías undergoes a fermentation, with local yeast from their own vineyards, in 500 litre barrels before there is an aging for a year.
Production is limited. Just over 1000 bottles which are only made in cooler years.  
A real gem, subtle and elegant.

Tasting notes Las Umbrías

It’s been a tough year at Sierra de Gredos but one with great results. The effects of adverse weather has led to low production volume for this vintage. Nighttime frosts on three consecutive days in April affected the growth cycle. During flowering, constant rains caused irregular development of the flower, resulting in the partial loss of production. This was followed by an extreme drought that lasted until the end of the year. Adding to the adverse weather, hailstorms appearing on two days, July 7 and August 28, resulted in production losses of up to 50% in some areas. Regarding the end results for the wines, according to Daniel Landi it has been challenging year, both for the vineyard and for the winery. In order to process what was a difficult vintage, they’ve had to retool the production process, with some excellent results: low production volumes but great wines that are light and refined. As Dani put it, “wines that travel northward, moving away from the Mediterranean character of the vintage.”
This plot consists of 6.3 hectares on white granite and limestone with calcareous parts.  This vineyard is composed of more ferric and quartz granites and minerals.  A great agile and sapid wine.
Sight Clear red colour with violet rim. Nose Very expressive on the nose. Ripe red fruit, spices, eucalyptus, anise, undergrowth herbs and mineral notes. Taste A powerful entrance on the palate. Good refined tannins. A good structure and acidity. The red fruits return that are present on the nose. Very elegant. Exquisite.
Sight Red colour with a reddish rim. Thick, slow-falling and barely-tinted tears on the glass. Nose Intense aromas with lots of ripe red fruit, fine toasted notes, soft spices, fresh balsamic notes, strong red liquorice, mountain herbs (lots of fresh rosemary) and smooth alcohol-soaked notes. A very refreshing backdrop of wet stones. Taste Smooth in the mouth. Very fine passage through the mouth, medium-bodied, with tasty red fruit and lightly toasted notes. Rather sweet tannins and a very good acidity. Intense balsamic notes with a strong touch of liquorice which is very present halfway and adds a point of freshness. Good length and very good persistence. Delicate texture, very elegant. Long finish with an aftertaste of red fruit and a very balsamic retro-olfaction.
