Pegaso “Zeta” Garnacha, Sierra de Gredos, Spain '19
Cebreros, a village within the Sierra de Gredos, was one of those forgotten regions that Telmo Rodriguez discovered on the Cañadas Reales in 1999 when the region was known only for bulk wine. He began to make his first wine that year and decided to use the name Pegaso, a tribute to the famous Spanish car and truck manufacturer of the 1940s, which is dear to collectors with an eye for design and style. Marc Isart, who has been the winemaker here since 2016, is known to many as one of the most knowledgeable and talented growers working in Sierra de Gredos. Marc has guided Pegaso into an incredible new clarity of expression, being neither overly light, as is the current winemaking trend, nor overbearing, as was the style of the area in the past. Instead, the Pegaso wines speak confidently and clearly of the slate and granite mountains, fresh air and pine trees.
Zeta is the Cebreros village entry-level wine, produced from old, organic, bush-trained Garnacha vines. Grapes from the slate and granite soils are blended in this bottling, lending depth and fruit character. The grapes are handpicked and fermented in 500-liter French barrels of different origins and ages. The wine spends nine months in foudre, steel tanks, and 500-liter barrels for blending and additional élevage. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry, cinnamon, and flowers. Rich, round, and ripe but dry, with a long finish and balanced acidity. Rhône fans will love this!
