The Telmo Rodriguez Pegaso Zeta comes from old, organic vineyards planted on granite and shale soils. It gives a very refined and accessible expression of the terroir of the Sierra de Gredos. The wine has a deep, ruby red color, in the nose red fruit, blackberries, and orange zest. Soft in the mouth, refined with ripe tannins and mild acidity. Beautiful long, mineral finish. No added yeasts have been used and the wine has matured for 6 months in 500 liter casks of mixed origin and age and also 6 months in stainless steel cuves. Like all wines from Telmo, this wine is also produced organically, so no artificial fertilizers and poison.

Winemaker Telmo Rodríguez is a phenomenon within the Spanish wine world. He studied at the University of Bordeaux and later in the Rhône with the famous August Clape. He was the winemaker of La Granja Senora De Remelluri, his father's bodega in Rioja. He left there to make what some call his own wines in various regions of Spain. Telmo lives in Madrid and drives by car to the various projects where he makes wine. In a short time his wines have found a place on the international playing field. One example: in Tom Stevenson's Wine Report, Telmo is already included in the top 10 producers from Spain. A characteristic of Telmo is that it chooses indigenous grape varieties, which are also pruned in an indigenous way. This means that it only works with 'bush vines' or vines that are not guided along wires, but grow as independent shrubs. The bushes are also further apart than with wire guidance. This has two advantages in warm Spain: every shrub finds sufficient moisture, even in dry vintages, and the clusters hang in the shade of their own leaves, so that they are less 'stewed'. Telmo likes to work with old canes, so that the roots are deep to find moisture. It also benefits the quality of the grapes. Old sticks give a lower yield, but are of high quality and complexity. Although not formally certified, Telmo works organically: it does not use artificial fertilizers or insecticides/pesticides.
