Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
The 'Cendal' Garnacha hails from the village of Camarena in the Gredos Mountains just south of Madrid. In this part of Spain, the unique microclimate features warm days and cool nights with huge diurnal shifts. This combo produces Garnacha that is both silky and fresh, with lovely aromatic, spicy, red fruits and a nice underpinning of minerality from the soils. The spice in Garnacha makes it a perfect pairing with spiced and herb-heavy dishes including roasted meats, vegetables, and a variety of ethnic foods.
