    Sierra de Gredos is a range of mountains west of Madrid.  The region’s rugged landscape, with its granite-laced soils, has been home to numerous winemaking families for generations and boasts a wealth of old Garnacha vines.  The vines had been forgotten in the most part but have been reawakened over the last few years by a new young crowd making their mark on the international wine scene. Here Pegaso was born from a collaboration between Rioja native Telmo Rodríguez, his long-time business partner Pablo Eguzkiza and two-time world rally champion Carlos Sainz Sr. They named the winery in tribute to Pegaso, a famous 1940s Spanish car manufacturer.

    The Pegaso vineyards are farmed organically, surrounded by juniper, rosemary and lavender bushes at an elevation of 850-900 metres. The granitic soils result in wines with vibrant tannins.  The Garnacha wines have a light, delicate, almost Burgundian finesse, developing notes of forest floor and mushrooms.

    On the nose, this wine is beautifully aromatic, with wild berries, blueberries, as well as slightly more floral and herbal notes. The palate is tasty with fine-grained tannins balanced by raspberry notes, hints of white pepper and a distinct granite character.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
