Cotexa is a new red wine from El Hato y El Garabato.  It is made from grapes harvested from very old vines (between 80 and 120 years old) that are a blend of local varieties found in the vineyard.  Juan García accounts for 80% of the blend, along with Bruñal, Tinta Jeromo, Bastardo, Rufete, Gajo Arroba, Doña Blanca, and Godello.  Cotexa seeks to showcase its blend of traditional local varietals from the old small vineyards in Arribes.

 

To produce the wine, the grapes are crushed (soft treading in full bunches).  The fermentation is spontaneous (i.e. no yeast is added) and the wine is macerated with its skins for a short period of 4 days.  As with all of their wines, Cotexa is neither clarified nor filtered.  There is only a small addition of sulphur (30mg/l).  Cotexa is aged for 7 months in barrels made of French oak.

 

The inclusion of white grapes gives this red wine a distinctive differentiating feature. 

 

Here's a taste of what you can expect from this wine:

  • Palate: It is very fresh, light, and fruity, with a marked minerality that originates from the granite and slate soils.
