Region: Camp de Borja
Pack Size: 6 Bottle Pack
Summary: El Cuidador is a personal project between longstanding friends Javier Muria and Nicholas Crampton with the aim to create modern site specific organic and sustainable wines.These wines typify the modern Spanish attitude to winemaking – fresh and vibrant wines made with care and with attention to organic viticulture turning out delicious food friendly reds that are true to their variety.
Vineyards: Sourced from established organic vineyards in the historic Campo de Borja region.
Winemaking: Totally de-stemmed with a short cold soak before a long, cool fermentation with daily pump - overs to achieve optimum fruit and colour. The core of the blend was aged in stainless steel before six months maturation in seasoned French and American oak.
Vintage 2020: A poor start to the growing season saw adverse weather affect the region but luckily this cleared up in the second half of the vintage when cooler temperatures arrived. Three major storms
including hail threatened to cause widespread mildew to the vines, thankfully warmer weather eradicated
the threat and an early heatwave prompted earlier than usual picking times. Despite the adverse conditions, quality was excellent with great concentration of flavour.
Tasting Note: An organic Grenache from Spain that announces itself with an aromatic nose of red fruits with trademark savoury spice. Soft and round with ample mouthfeel delivering a fresh and bright wine that will pair beautifully with chargrilled meats.
