La Danza del Viento La Isilla 2020
Elegante, potente y memorable. El suelo sobre el que se asienta el viñedo de Garnacha es de arena granítica tan fina que parece arena de playa. De este paraje tan particular apenas han unas pocas botellas de esta joya madrileña.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2020 La Danza del Viento La Isilla comes from a plot in Cadalso de los Vidrios in the lieu-dit, or paraje, that gives the wine its name, La Isilla. It is a 90+-year-old plot on very degraded granite at 860 meters in altitude, and it contains some 2% Cariñena that fermented together with the Garnacha with full clusters and had a 48-day maceration. There are more vineyard in this paraje, but this plot has finer sand and delivers wines with more finesse than the others (some are now used for the village Aguja del Fraile). The wine matured in 225- and 500-liter French oak barrels for 14 months. This is ethereal and perfumed and has a rare combination of elegance, power, grip, fine tannins and a tactile sensation. They got a decent yield in 2020 (Garnacha is finicky and yields can be very irregular), and that also contributes to the balance of the wine. This is pale and aromatic, escaping the more fruit-driven character often found in Cadalso with more complexity, rockrose, resin and plants. It is nuanced, layered, elegant and very long. Delicious! 930 bottles and six magnums were filled in June 2022.
