Castro Candaz is the name of the joint project between Raul Perez (Bierzo) and Rodrigo 'Rodri' Mendez (Forjas del Salnes in Rias Baixas). They aim for more Burgundian wines in the zone of Chantada where the soils are granite based. The wines are different from what Raul has been producing in the zone under the names El Pecado and La Penitencia. Chantada is a cooler zone within Ribeira Sacra. Incredibly perfumed and elegant. A must try.
