4 Monos (4 Monkeys) is a team of four friends and lovers of wine native to this region. As is typical of The New Spain, this “gang of four” assembled in a less conventional manner: they met while hiking in the Gredos mountains, one of the most profound wine terroirs to emerge in recent years.
GR 10 Tinto is the team's Vino de Sierra or "villages level" red from several parcels in Cadalso de los Vidrios, San Martín de Valdeiglesias & Cenicientos. The grapes are cold macerated 50% whole cluster and 50% de-stemmed, wild yeast fermented for 30-40 days, then raised in used barrels for 9 months.
This is a lively, fresh, Grenache dominated blend with also Cariñena and Syrah shows a focused expression of the granitic soils and high elevation vineyards of the Sierra de Gredos.
Best served chilled with friends and meat and cheese !
