Brothers Daniel and Gonzalo Amigo returned to their roots to establish Bodegas Madai, recovering their grandparents' vineyards in El Bierzo, north-west Spain. Here, at the northernmost limit of Bierzo, their vineyards experience a continental-atlantic climate.On steep, south-facing, slopes ideal for ripening grapes they discovered plots of old Godello and Mencia vines too - over 100 years old. They believe the established, gnarled vines on these old plots (around 4ha) have found a natural equilibrium, producing very low yields with no fertilisers and minimal intervention.

Vibrant aromas of cherry and red berry with a hint of violet. The palate is complex with crunchy berry fruit, a hint of liquorice, smooth tannins and floral characters – all balanced by fresh acidity and with a velvety finish.
