El Rey del Glam is from two sources of Garnacha, one in Ribera del Duero at 700-920m and the other at 1,100m in the Sierra de Gredos mountains outside of Madrid. Grapes were hand-harvested the first week of October due to high elevation, wild yeast fermented in steel vat whole cluster and without crushing (carbonic maceration), raised over winter in vat, and bottled in February without fining, filtration or added SO2. This is a medium-bodied wine with layers of juicy fruit and spice, meant to be drunk young when the wine is at its most youthful. Delicious with barbecued meats and grilled vegetables.
