[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]An expressive and lively and aromatic red.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
Pure Syrah from vines in Méntrida, the 2017 Malpaso fermented with full clusters in open 1,500- and 5,000-liter oak vats and matured in barrels of different sizes for around one year. It has an explosive nose with notes of black olives, smoked bacon, violets and an herbal twist. It doesn’t show the heat of the vintage and instead comes through as fresh, expressive and vibrant; it’s medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and is very easy to drink. It seems like the way they work—picking the grapes early to avoid too much ripeness, fermenting with stems in a non-extractive way and aging the wines in larger barrels to avoid notes of wood— works well with the variety. 21,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2018.” 93 Points (Malpaso 2017)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_progress_bar values=”%5B%7B%22label%22%3A%22BODY%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2260%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22TANNIN%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2260%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22ACIDITY%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2270%22%7D%5D”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title=”Allergens” tab_id=”1669199419339-a1c6278f-7078617c-ff990a13-757b”][vc_column_text]Contains: Sulphites[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Tasting Notes” tab_id=”1669199419345-0ba7893e-a69c617c-ff990a13-757b”][vc_column_text]COLOUR

Castilla-La Mancha’s high-quality red wines are bold and lush with aromas of grilled toast. Local producers adopted French grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah for the production of high-quality wines alongside local grapes.


Canopy is a young winery focused on the rediscovery of the old Méntrida terroir as the origin of unique wines. It is a reference to the terroir, to wines created from the vineyard, at an altitude of 750 meters, in the Sierra de San Vicente, between the valleys of the Tajo and Tietar rivers. These vines are subject to a beneficial microclimate that really manifests itself at night, when the temperatures drop and the aromas are set in the old Grenache vines, together with modern Syrah plantations, just like authentic vineyards, perfectly adapted to a harsh and demanding area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”12929″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Bodegas Canopy

This winery is the project of two winemakers, Belarmino Fernández and Alfonso Chacón, who began their venture in 2003 with the aim to revive the historical terroir and wines of Méntrida, where winemaking dates back to the 12th century.

Méntrida is a wine region in the north-eastern corner of the Toledo province, in Castilla-La Mancha, central Spain, bordered by the Sierra de Gredos mountain range.

Wine industry here is small but Canopy is intent on bringing Méntrida to the attention of winelovers everywhere, through producing quality wines with the focus on the vines, practising sustainable organic viticulture with minimal intervention.

Méntrida’s favourable microclimate and the vineyard’s altitude of 750 meters, make for ideal circumstances for the old Grenache and modern Syrah vines which are perfectly suited to a harsh and demanding land.

Canopy’s team insists that their wines are unique due to the distinctive personality of the winery’s parcels, the way they maintain their vineyard’s and their rigorous process of producing and ageing their wines.

Bodegas Canopy: “Throughout this entire process, respect for the primary material is at the forefront, which is why we do not add any additives. The purpose of all this is for people to enjoy our wines as much as we enjoy making them.”

The bodega welcomes visitors for an informative tour of its facilities and tasting of four of their best wines: Ganadero blanco, Ganadero tinto, Malpaso and Congo, together with a snack.
