Arrebatacapas is one of the great single vineyards of Spain. It is from the vineyard which
started it all for Telmo and Pablo in Sierra de Gredos in 1999 and inspired the direction of
Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodríguez. Arrebatacapas is a steep, south-facing 2.1ha slope
at an elevation of 1050m -1200m, with garnacha vines planted in 1953, surrounded by juniper, rosemary, and lavender.
Considerable veins of quartz pass through the red slate vineyard, giving exotic, nervy, perfumed, and epically structured
wines that are amongst the most profound examples of garnacha produced anywhere on the planet. The farming at
Pegaso is organic, and the wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling.
Vinification - Whole clusters are picked by hand in small boxes, with a strict selection made in the vineyard. The clusters are destemmed, crushed, and fermented spontaneously with native yeasts in large neutral French oak foudres with very long maceration times (over 40 days). The wine is then aged for 12 months in new and used 600L French oak barrels sourced from different forests.
