Vinadores de Gredos - Surprise Chasselas 2017 - Castilla y Leon, Spain



The Sierra do Gredos mountains are quickly gaining a reputation as one of Spain's most exciting wine-making regions. Located on Spain's baking-hot central plateau, the mountains provide a welcome respite from the heat and allow grapes to ripen slowly, producing fresh wines. Ruben Diaz is born and bred in Avila, a village that has been at the centre of this region's reawakening. 

His Surprise Chasselas is aptly named. This Swiss grape variety is aged in a complex system of barrels known as a solera. Wines from different vintages are fractionally blended with a small portion of the total wine being bottled each year. The barrels are only part full, allowing a layer of yeast to grow on the top, as is common in the production of sherry and vin jaune. The result is a mind-bending wine that combines elements of Spain, Switzerland and the Jura.  

Tasting notes: Citrus peel, saline, nutty, curry leaf, clove, cooked apples. Clean, bright acidity with distinctive saline/umami mixture.

Food pairing: Co-opt a classic pairing and drink this with coq au vin. It will also have a concentration to stand up to any intensely flavoured dishes.
