Castillo de Maluenda 2020

Vino de España

Nickname for winemaker Rubén Magallanes is ‘La Voz de la Garnacha’, meaning ‘the voice of Garnacha’. He crafts this juicy, dark-fruit red from high-altitude, old-vine Garnacha and a touch of herbal Monastrell. It’s a silky, rich Spanish sip.

It’s back, and better than ever! We’ve been holding onto the sweet memory of this juicy, dark Spanish Garnacha for years. Back in the 1990s it was one of Tony Laithwaite’s favourite wines, and our customers loved it too. Today it’s made by Bodegas Raíces Ibérica, which was set up by Mark Schiettekat in 2020. Starting up as a local wine merchant (from his garage) in Aragón in the 1990s, Mark has come a long way and has been impressing the critics as he goes. Master of Wine Jancis Robinson listed the bodega as one of Spain’s “exciting newcomers”. Winemaker Rubén Magallanes, a Garnacha fanatic, uses high-altitude, old-vine fruit, to ensure a freshness to the flavour-filled, sweetly spiced red. It's a warming glass solo or with hearty dishes.

"Vibrant, juicy red cherries with soft tannins and a hint of thyme. Calling out for tapas" Diane Thompson
