This wine is produced from a blend of Syrah and Garnacha from the El Rincón estate vineyard in the Aldea del Freso region of the DO Vinos de Madrid. The family strives to capture the unique terroir in the bottle of each wine they make, and El Rincón is no exception. Here, the vines are grown in decomposed granite, which they believe lends an unmistakable elegance and precision to the final wine.

Tasting Notes

El Rincón is deep ruby-red in color, and marked by expressive notes of ripe plums, violets, spice and a hint of caramel. On the palate, it shows outstanding balance and complexity with plenty of ripe fruit, backed up with firm but soft tannins.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with roast pork tenderloin smothered in stewed apricots or lamb casseroles.
