Characteristics of Malpaso

Malpaso is a red wine from Méntrida made by Bodegas Canopy, a young winery that practices minimally interventionist organic farming, which allows wines with great expression to be cultivated on silicon-granitic soils.

The climate in this area is extreme and continental, characterized by long, cold winters, somewhat tempered by the Sierra de Gredos which acts as a natural barrier against the cold winds from the north and west. Summers are hot and very little rainfall. The large seasonal temperature variation is perfect for ripening grapes. This wine is a varietal Syrah (100%) from 10 hectares of vineyards 15 years old. The vineyards are planted on trellises and sandy soils of granitic origin. In terms of processing, a cold maceration is carried out after the grapes are stemmed. Subsequently, the wine undergoes a fermentation within its container for 15 days. Finally, Malpaso spends 8 months in French oak barrels of 500 litres, 50% new and 50% formerly used by a single wine.

Tasting notes Malpaso

Sight

Cherry colour. Clean, bright and middle layer.

Nose

The nose is intense and powerful. Aromas of black fruit with herbal notes, florals, balsamic and toasted notes. Subtle mineral background.

Taste

The palate is powerful and very fruity. It is balanced, round and tasty. Great acidity and tannins. Full and persistent.

Sight Intense dark cherry red colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright wine with abundant tears. Nose High intensity, powerful nasal aromas. Its aromas of black fruit at their optimal ripening stand out along with some spicy hints of white pepper and some nuances reminiscent of flowers, aromatic herbs and balsamic scents. Its subtle and noble toasted notes and a deep minerality perfectly match this powerness. Taste After a bulky attack, this Spanish wine shows a mid palate marked by its abundant notes of fruit, its great acidity and its intense and ripe tannic sensation. A highly structured, elegant and persistent red wine with a subtle bitterness in the after-taste. Fruit and balsamic aromas appear at retro-olfaction.

Designation of Origin D.O. Méntrida

Winery Canopy

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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Méntrida

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.
