Envinate Albahra, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, 2020 (750ml)
Earthy fresh, blackberry, cherry and dusty-plum fruits mingle with peppery spice, anise and hints of minerality. Medium weight with pronounced acidity, Albahra is a stellar example of this up and coming D.O.
ABOUT THE WINE
All grapes are hand-harvested and vinified separately by parcel. The Garnacha Tintorera is foot-trodden in vat with 30-50% stems included and 6-10 days skin maceration, then fermented and raised on fine lees in concrete for 8 months; the Moravia Agria is completely destemmed and sees 7 days maceration before being pressed and raised on fine lees in 228L used French barriques for 8 months, all without battonage. The wine is then blended and bottled unfined, unfiltered and with very little SO2 addition.Varietals: Garnacha Tintorera (70%), Moravia Agria (30%)
