La Maldicion Vinos de Madrid Tinto de Valdilecha 2019



In stock

  • High altitude, old vine Tempranillo
  • From the Arganda del Rey area (within the Viños de Madrid DO)
  • A pure and fine expression of Spanish Tempranillo

“Marc Isart is best known for his work at the outstanding Bernabeleva in the Gredos hills
above Madrid, and his lo-fi, organic approach carries over to this tiny solo project: La
Maldición. His small parcel of vines is located in the Arganda del Rey area (also within
the Viños de Madrid DO). The La Maldición—‘the curse’—refers to the daily grind that this region’s historical workers faced getting to (and making a living off) the remote, high-altitude, rocky vineyards east of Madrid.

This is a blend of 75% mature-vine Tempranillo (from Valdilecha at 780 metres) with the
local white grape Malvar making up the balance. The vines are all biodynamically reared
and the grapes hand-harvested. Both varieties were co-fermented with natural yeasts, then the wine was aged in cement and stainless steel tanks.” – Bibendum Wine Co
