BURADÓN Las Plegarias Garnacha
GRAPE: 100% Garnacha
APPELLATION: Rioja DOCa
VINIFICATION: Manual harvest in 18 Kg crates. Vatted without destemming. Fermentation and maceration for one month, aging in 600-capacity foudres and 500-capacity barrels. Without filtering or stabilizing.
TASTING NOTES: Juicy and elegant, very fresh and delicate. The nose is mainly floral and evolves towards more fruity nuances, where strawberry stands out. In the mouth it is very subtle and sophisticated, fluid and light, with a very rich and tasty acidity. Mineral touches are perceived. Exquisite finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Roasted or grilled lamb, stews. Red meats made on the barbecue accompanied by vegetables, such as peppers and eggplants.

Carlos Sánchez, who defines himself as a winegrower, studied teaching, although he soon realized that the viticulture and what surrounds the world of wine mean much more to him. The philosophy behind his wines is to produce pure wines, with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the winery.
Carlos seeks to reflect the places and towns where the grapes come from. Little interventionist elaboration, natural wines that represent the areas where they are produced, moving away from globalization and large productions.
