In the '60s, a serious crisis in the price of grapes led to a significant proportion of the vineyards in the Valley of Nekeas being destroyed. Only a few plots of Garnacha grapes just of "El Chaparral", only at the high elevation in the valley. Years later, in 1997, when these vineyards were on the verge of disappearing, we made our first red wine from their grapes. We called it El Chaparral de Vega Sindoa and tried to convey the essence of the tradition of our land in it. Wine lovers understood its language and have, since then, been loyal year after year to this unique wine whose delicacy, elegance and refinement reflect Spain's northernmost Garnacha grapes.

Wine AdvocateAlways a favorite of mine, the 2015 Vega Sindoa El Chaparral Old Vines Garnacha is a herbal, spicy and balsamic expression of the grape. It's produced with fruit from old vines and it's ripe without excess, quite round and sleek in this dry and warm year, and nicely integrated oak from its five to six months in barrique. 30,000 bottles produced.

Wine SpectatorJammy flavors of framboise and chocolate mingle with licorice and cola notes in this expressive red, which is ripe but still lively, in a candied style. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.
