Canopy Castillo Belarfonso

£20.00

Founded in 2004 by Belarmino Fernandez and Alfonso Chacon, Canopy has (quite unassumingly) played a significant role in helping the wider world to appreciate what the ‘New Spain’ is capable of – Michel Bettane even went so far as to acknowledge them as ‘architects of the Spanish renassiance’. Belarmino and Alfonso are self-confessed ‘terroir obsessives’, driven by a desire to bottle the unique characteristics of their little corner of Sierra de Gredos.

An amalgam of the two founders’ names complete with its own bouncy castle, a tongue-in-cheek reference to France’s ‘grand vins’ and their imposing chateaux. 100% old vine Grenache from the granitic soils of El Real de San Vicente. Very much a ‘vin de soif’ but not at the expense of complexity, thanks to 6 months in French oak.
