'Comando G' comprises of 3 wine makers (Fernando García, Daniel Gómez Jiménez-Landi and Marc Isart) who met at university in 2005 and who share a passion for old vine Garnacha. They started their business in 2010 by developing two wines from 60-90 year old Garnacha vines situated in the remote Sierra de Gredos between the provinces of Madrid and Avila. There are 10 hectares of vines spread out among the villages of Cadalso de los Vidrios and Rozas de Puerto Real, all situated on granite soil at an altitude of between 900 and 1,000 metres and everything is carried out strictly according to biodynamic principles. Mataborricos comprises mainly of Garnacha Tinto with a little Carinena (Carignan) and is raised in 4 different amphorae for a total of 12 months giving up a round and succulent red.
A bright garnet-red in colour. Aromas of plum, liquorice and juniper. On the palate, medium-bodied with fresh tannins and a vibrant acidity leading to a lingering finish. Pair with Cocido Madrileno (pork stew with chorizo & chickpeas), grilled scallops with chorizo and a green pea puree or pickled pepper and sherry croquetas.
