Ganadero Tinto 2022, Bodegas Canopy, Toledo
On the nose, notes of fruits (blueberries), flowers and earth, undergrowth, fresh aromatic herbs give the wine a surprising nose reminiscent of the forest.
In the mouth, its refreshing notes makes it hard to turn down another glass. It has good acidity and nice structure, as well as smooth and pleasant tannins. Chocolate notes.
A vibrant wine with a persistent retronasal aroma and a flavorful finish.
In 2018, Bodegas Canopy launched Ganadero, a refreshingly fun 100% Grenache red wine, which is complex yet easy drinking. Its incessant search for interesting vineyards that leave their mark on its wines provided the basis for this young red wine. It’s a single-varietal wine aged three months in French oak barrels, born of an undulating terrain composed of sandy soils.
The label depicts one of the most recognized icons of Spanish culture abroad—the bull—while giving the traditional image a refresh by portraying it as a farmer; a bit of silliness (or chimera) that is a playful nod to the animal, which is shown on the label to be modern, elegant and the master of its own destiny.
A pre-fermentation maceration is carried out at a controlled temperature, with subsequent alcoholic fermentation taking place. Once completed, malolactic fermentation in 500-liter barrels occurs. 3 months in French oak.
