Comando G know good Garnacha. This introduction to their range is brimming with dark, brooding fruit, alongside zingy raspberry and a smokey finish. An approachable expression of Comando G's signature style, that's drinking well in its youth and has a touch more grip than their single-vineyard wines. Perfect slightly chilled and served up with summer barbecue.

'La Bruja de Rozas' translates to 'The Witch of Rozas' and let's just say that this Garnacha is certainly as magical as its name suggests. The wines of Comando G have achieved mythical status in recent years, so it is incredibly exciting to be able to get our hands on some of their illustrious 'village wine'. 

About Comando G

Daniel Landi and Fernando García have been friends since college. Successful winemakers in their own right – Dani at his family’s estate, Bodegas Jimenez-Landi and Fer at Bodega Marañones - in 2008 they started a winemaking project together: Comando G. Along with the pioneers of Priorat, Dani and Fer are redefining Garnacha, previously viewed as a workhorse variety, into something that can rival the elegance and finesse of Burgundian Pinot Noir or Syrah in the northern Rhône.

The duo work with several small, isolated plots perched high up in the mountainous Sierra de Gredos to create truly unique, terroir-expressive wines. The vineyards that Daniel and Fernando have assembled are all farmed biodynamically, with vines ranging in age from 50 to 80 years old. According to Wine Advocate writer Luis Gutierrez, "they improve their vineyards from the moment they buy or rent them [...] The quality of their wines is what they strive to improve the most, and the results are there.”

In the winery their winemaking is considered and precise, gently coaxing out the delicate balance of fruit character and terroir from each site. It is this commitment to a sense of place, nuance, and finesse that make their wines among the most compelling in Spain.
