The wine

Sotorrondero is a fairly intense and powerful wine, but also free-flowing and easily-drinkable, balanced and pleasurable, and one of those wines that always scores highly when its price is taken into consideration. At Jiménez-Landi, their work involves showing great respect for the environment, with little intervention during production processes, and this results in the wines conveying typicity, fruit and minerality.

This is a Garnacha and Syrah blend, or Syrah and Garnacha, as the balance is perfect; ripe Garnacha and fresh Syrah grapes; sweet and juicy Mediterranean Garnachas, and fresh northern Syrahs, high-altitude Syrahs, from vineyards that are planted at altitudes over 600 metres.

In appearance it is clean, of medium intensity and with a good show of tears, while rich in fruit aromas on the nose. It opens up in the glass with candy-sweet aromas which rapidly refresh and then ease off, highlighting ripe red fruit and some black too (blueberries, raspberries, mature plums) and notes of violets, vegetal hints, bakery, tobacco and balsamic notes. It is luscious overall, but also woodland, fresh, smooth and most appealing.

On the palate it is intense, powerful, with plenty of body but without excessive extraction, and has a fine balsamic bitterness: of eucalyptus on the nose and bay laurel on the palate. A sincere wine helping to introduce us to this denomination, Méntrida, still unknown to many.

The winery

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi is a family-run enterprise which has arisen out of passion for the land and vines, and inherited the tradition both of former generations and also the actual area in which it is located, Méntrida, a town near the Sierra de Gredos mountains whose wine-growing past dates back to the 12th Century. The winery building is set inside an old manor house built in the 16th Century, within which they have managed to preserve a cave where their forebears used to...
