About This Wine

50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha blend. This perfumed and fleshy red comes from a single vineyard of 30 year old Tempranillo and Garnacha bush vines grown on granitic sand and clay, at 670 metres elevation in the Navalcarnero subregion (one of the three that make up the D.O. of Vinos de Madrid). Maestro has managed this parcel organically since 2002. The name A Dos Tiempos meaning 'at two times', comes from the fact the vineyard is harvested twice, as much as three weeks apart.

All the fruit is destemmed, fermented with wild yeasts in vat, before blending and maturation occurs over six months in mature French oak barrique and hogsheads. There is never any new wood. The 2016 is a silky, vibrant wine dripping in aromas and flavours of blackcurrant jubes, red rose and violet. There's significant flavour impact but not at the expense of finesse and freshness. As the late, great Mr. Morrison once sang, "love me two times"!

Wines of Spain

With 2.9 million acres of land planted in wine grapes, Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation and second largest producer in the world. Many styles of wine are produced in the country most of which are based on native grape varietals.

The two most famous regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero for their Tempranillo production. Rioja Tempranillo (the classic) will be lighter and fresher with red fruit flavours as compared to those from Ribera del Duero that are often deep purple, higher in alcohol with more tannins and intense black fruit character. Rioja is also known for producing Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from the indigenous Viura varietal.

In the Catalonia region, Spain is recognized for making a sparkling wine in the traditional method but using native grape varieties. This is called Cava. Priorat, a subregion within Catalonia specializes in making still red blends of Garnacha, Carignan and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in a bold and full-bodied style. Together with Rioja, wines from Priorat have achieved DOCa/DOQ status signifying their quality.

Sherry is Spain’s famous fortified wine which can either be completely dry, lusciously sweet or somewhere in between. This is made in the southern region of Jerez.

Other notable Spanish wine styles include: Monastrell (AKA. Mataro/Mourvèdre), produced in the Jumilla region and refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo from north western Galacia.
