The La Bruja de Rozas is a Villages style wine. The name translates to ‘the witch of Rozas.’ Superstitions and rumours abound in the area where near ever-present and eerie cloud cover that sits. The fruit is sourced from several vineyards around near the village of Rozas. And there is more than a hint of Villages Burgundy about the La Bruja. Expect dried cherries and herb notes on the nose and pinpoint signature Gredos/Comando G acidity. A great introduction to Comando G and Sierra de Gredos Garnacha.
"I tasted the 2017 La Bruja de Rozas from one of the most challenging vintages of recent times. The result is spectacular, but volumes are much lower. In this warmer and riper year, they also used a portion of the must without skins or stems to try to achieve a lighter wine with more freshness. It has the Rozas floral character, with a little more tannin, as I often see with warmer vintages. 35,000 bottles were produced in this vintage affected by hail, which also greatly affected this village." 92 points, Luis Gutierrez (December 2018)
Delicious, fresh strawberries, terracotta, blueberries, kola nuts, orange peel and freshly squeezed citrus. Despite the bright and expressive nose, the palate is quite serious with firm tannins and a lightly chewy finish.
