4 Monos (4 Monkeys) is a project started in 2010 by 4 wine savvy friends in the Gredos mountains, 90-minutes west of Madrid. They work 4 hectares of their own, as well as 10ha with other growers. They farm everything organically and capture the terroir and freshness of grapes grown on granite soils. Classically using wild yeasts and whole grape clusters for fermentation, foot-trodding the grapes for minimal extraction, little sulfur, and minimal oak treatment. 100% whole clusters and 40 days maceration, then raised in 300 and 500 liter used barrels for 12 months. The Cenicientos is about 95% Garnacha with the remainder a blend of Cariñena and Garnacha Blanca. These wines are weightless and flavorful with lip-smacking granitic minerality and incomparable finesse.
