Winemaker Isabel Galindo crafts Garnacha on high granite soils at around 900-1,000 meters. The altitude leads to slower, better ripening, and the outcome is elegant, balanced wines. The winemaking process is minimalist to make the grape the undisputed star of the show. The 21 hectare bush trained vineyard «Pagos de los Castillejos» is in the D.O. Vinos de Madrid, a historical area where monks from the nearby Cistercian monastery used to grow grapes.
The 2017 harvest was marked by a non-existent spring and a dry, very warm autumn. April frosts affected the grape quantity. Ageing took place for ten months in French oak barrels of varying uses. Senda is fresh, lively, and aromatic with floral, plum, herbal aromas, built on a a mineral backbone characteristic of the granite soils.
