Bululú Garnacha

Red Wine

2018

The name “Bululú” refers to an actor skilled in mimicry who, in the past, would travel from town to town, playing many roles within a play on their own.  This is itself a reference to one of the old meanings of the word “garnacha”– a Baroque-era travelling theatre troupe.


Ana and Ruth de Andrés strive to make the best wines they can while also breathing life into their small village. Where they can't grow grapes, they plant native trees to preserve and enhance the environment.

 

100% Garnacha from old, gobelet-pruned vines, grown in sand and granite soil at a very high altitude (1007 meters) in the Sierra de Gredos outside of Madrid, Spain.  Indigenous yeasts, very low sulphur, along with a very soft fining.  Fermented and aged for 12-months in concrete tanks to emphasize the freshness and purity of the fruit.

 

Bright and light, almost Pinot Noir-like in its elegance. Red fruit on the nose and palate, they are ethereal in their quality, precise and pure, and by no means overworked. Subtle tannins but well-preserved acidity lends structure and brings it together.
