Overview

Las Umbrías is a single vineyard wine from primarily granite soils that shows the most delicate and floral character of any of the parcel wines of Comando G. Like its siblings it is remarkably pale in color but looks are deceiving as the aromas and subtle red fruit flavors are deftly balanced by fine tannin and a mineral acidity. There are small patched of clay in the otherwise granitic sandy soil of Las Umbrías, perhaps that’s what give the wine added poise as the winemaking is the same here as with the other wines: hand harvested, native fermentation, long maceration and aging in foudre and 500 liter barrels for 12 months.
