Jimenez-Landi Tierra de Castilla y Leon 'Las Iruelas' 2015
Revolutionary winemaker Daniel Landi is making waves in Castilla y Leon with his unique, biodynamically farmed bottles, seeking to highlight the oftentimes forgotten terroir of Central Spain. Fruit for ‘Las Iruelas’ comes from a one hectare parcel dedicated to Grenache, fermented in old French oak and macerated for two months. Aged for 14 months in French barrique, giving way to a complex and silky expression of the grape.
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
