In its ongoing search for the perfect Grenache, in 2007, Bodegas Canopy launched Kaos, an elegant, limited-production wine that expresses the full potential of high-altitude Grenache like no other.
After many years spent recovering old vineyards at high altitudes, the Canopy hit pay dirt in Cebreros. Nestled in the valley of Alberche, amidst the snowy peaks of Gredos and Guadarrama, the Cebreros vineyard is characterized by its dizzying, almost ravine-like slopes, where old vines over 76 years old spread their roots through the wild, rugged slate soil.
These conditions, together with the utmost respect for the land and the limited production of the old vines, distill the essence of the fruit into the bottle, resulting in a wine with a unique personality, which ages in 500-liter barrels for eighteen months.

|Old vines more than 76 years old on slate soil.|
|Pre-fermentation cold maceration for 15 days, with entire grapes, gentle crushing, no pumps are used and pressing is very gentle.|
|18 months in 500 L French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation in barrels.|
With a deep intensity, its bright red color is reminiscent of ripe cherries. On the nose, it’s complex and elegant, with an aromatic palette in which the primary aromas of fresh fruit, orange peel and aromatic herbs stand out, accompanied by a minerality that is expressed as graphite notes, together with aromas of cocoa and a toasted flavor characteristic of aging in French oak. In the mouth, it’s pleasant and easy drinking while intense and balanced at the same time, with ripe, fine and delicate tannins that prolong its enjoyment and fruitiness.
Here’s something else…Its score of 92 Parker points is a testament to the quality of this wine, which gives off a sweet, fruity aroma tempered by the austerity of slate soils.
