Ganadero Blanco 2020, Bodegas Canopy Mentrida
Elegant with its floral, grassiness but surprisingly complex too, with fennel, strawberry and peach notes.
Founded in 2004 by Belarmino Fernandez and Alfonso Chacon, Canopy has (quite unassumingly) played a significant role in helping the wider world to appreciate what the ‘New Spain’ is capable of – Michel Bettane even went so far as to acknowledge them as ‘architects of the Spanish renassiance’. Belarmino and Alfonso are self-confessed ‘terroir obsessives’, driven by a desire to bottle the unique characteristics of their little corner of Sierra de Gredos.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
