Made from a grape that probably hails from the Somontano region of Spain (where it is known as Parraleta) this is a tight, stalky wine that has acidity and black currant fruit in abundance. Its tannins are more restrained than the fruit, allowing a light structure to hold up the juicy acidity and crisp aftertaste. Drink from 2017.
