The small amount of these grapes that remain means it is not possible to vinify them separately so the grapes tend to be harvested together as a Field Blend.
A mix of small plots of a multitude of exotic old fashioned grapes resulting in a flavoursome, rich yet vibrant wine from the heart of Spain
Inspired by Spain's largely untapped fine wine resources, friends, Masters of Wine, Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke set off on a journey to find the unsung heroes of Spain, be they regions, growers or winemakers. Fergal's interest in wine terroirs and Giles' instincts for flavour, led them to unearth great Spanish wines whose stories were untold. Each wine is hand made and each wine reflects the personality of the land and the subtle imprint of man to varying degrees.
Many of Spain's vineyards are devoted to the commercial grape varieties that we all know and love, but there are also small plots of older, native varieties that farmers have preserved out of a sense of pride or interest in their history to bring together lots of things that we 'love' about Spain, from the dry grown bush vines seemingly being watered by magic, amongst the abundant saffron croci that are common across La Mancha. Today we recognise more and more the value of this diversity and the wealth of flavours of some of these older varieties when they come together in a blend. The small amount of these grapes that remain means it is not possible to vinify them separately so the grapes are harvested as a Field Blend.
