High up in the Gredos Mountains, Daniel is utilising Garnacha and Albillo Real and combining them with the old ways of viticulture. This Aussie born winemaker, known to his mates as Kapi (El Capitan), exudes quiet and deep enthusiasm for his homeland, and its diversity of terroirs.
Making the wines with minimal intervention, he manages to give his Garnachas multiple threads of flavour and a scary depth. His ancient vines Albillo Real is unique for its richness and power. He achieves remarkable ripeness and acidity from both these varieties, and does not need to make adjustments in his winemaking (nothing added and nothing taken away!). This shows how well suited they are to their natural home.
