Bodega Marañones is located in San Martín de Valdeiglesias, a sub-region of the Vinos de Madrid DO. Winemaker Fernando Garcia has been heavily influenced by the biodynamic wines of the Loire and Burgundy, so it is no great surprise that his old vine Garnacha, Syrah and Albillo wines have a sense of balance, freshness and of course, sense of place. His wines are a clear and pure expression of each variety and their region undoubtedly making Fernando one of Spain’s most talented up and coming winemakers, and someone well worth keeping an eye on.

Picarana is straight Albillo and a fantastic introduction to the variety; referring to a species of bird that inhabits the highest points of the hill where these vineyards are located. The vineyards are between 30 and 80 years old, farmed organically and completely ploughed by horse. Think of this wine as an alternative to Chardonnay. A lovely texture, crisp acidity and richness brought on by barrel fermentation. A super intriguing white wine.

Tasting Note:
Gentle aromas of jasmine, white florals and honeysuckle is enough to get you curious. On the palate, there is weight and richness here, but not it's not overly acidic. This is soft and rounded with gentle structure with elements of lees and barrel adding complexity. Plenty of white florals, lycee and apricot to taste; but it's also has a freshness looking almost Northern Rhone-white like in it's texture and depth. 

Money well spent....

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
