Highlights: El Hombre Bala 2015 Vinos de Madrid, Spain

Gotta love infusion-style Garnacha from Gredos! This is a good one. I bought this bottle a few years ago at a wine shop in Cambados, and now was a good time to drink it.

El Hombre Bala 2015 Vinos de Madrid, Spain
14.5% alcohol. El Hombre Bala translates as The Human Cannonball. This is an old vine Garnacha from four vineyards in the Gredos mountains. It’s a joint project between Barcelona’s Vila Viniteca owners Quim Vila and Francisco Marti, and Comando G. Relatively pale in colour, it’s a fresh, aromatic, slightly spicy expression of Garnacha with real elegance. Red cherries, pomegranate and a touch of gravelly spicy savouriness, with a lightness of being and nice texture. There are some mountain herb notes, too. A really beautiful expression of this grape, and very much in the elegant style that Comando G have become known for. 94/100 (£21.75 Worth Brothers, UK agent is Boutinot)
