4 Monos, Vinos de Madrid "Car" 2016Regular price $45.00 Save $-45.00
4 Monos means “4 monkeys” and refers to four friends and lovers of wine native to the region of Madrid. This “gang of four” assembled in an extraordinary manner, while hiking in the Gredos mountains. This is a landscape that is a meeting of Mediterranean and Alpine; the region is often deemed magical for its beauty and diversity. The 4 Monos, with various backgrounds, have a unified mentality: organic wine practice, minimalism in the cellar, a focus on the land and variances in terroir. While the friends only founded 4 Monos in 2009, they are bringing the potential of the Gredos terroir to the world’s attention.
“Car” is short for its namesake Carignan variety of which it’s based. This is a unique bottling coming from the great cru of “Arroyo del Tortolas” located in the Vinos de Madrid growing area. It features 30 year old Carignan vines. This wine is whole cluster fermented and then aged in 300 liter barrels for 14 months.
