2016 Tempranillo (MAGNUM) - Santos Brujos

The Santos Brujos Estate:

- Santos Brujos is one of the few wineries in the region that has taken the steps to become certified organic and biodynamic. Certified by the CCOF, USDA and Demeter, they perhaps more dedicated to this approach than anyone else we have seen thus far. Even the name "Santos Brujos", which translates to "Saintly Witches" makes reference to the practice prescribed by Rudolf Steiner, (the founder of Biodynamic farming) by which the amendments to the soil and plants are prepared and stirred at length by hand. 

- All wines come from estate vineyards that are organically and biodynamically farmed. 

- All of the wines are made in a 'natural' style with native yeast fermentation, no additives, and have very minimal sulfites added at bottling for stability. 

Total production: 5 wines, 2,000 cases

2016 Tempranillo (MAGNUM) - Santos Brujos

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    This is the first vintage where Luis was the winemaker, and he took over the operation after the fruit had already been harvested so it's really a collaboration with Renaldo who filled the roll before him. We just received a handful of these magnums as library releases direct from the winery and have to say everything we thought about this vintage from the start has come to pass: structured and wild upon release it would round out and find grace and elegance with age. With plenty of time ahead of it, (it could easily age another 10 to 15 years) it's starting to show what the estate is capable of. If possible, get a few of these so you can open them over time and witness firsthand one of the early iterations of what will certainly become one of reference estates of Mexico.
