Aranleon Montesanco Encuentro Organic 2018

  • Before the rise of Tempranillo, Bobal and Garnacha were the dominant black grapes grown in Spain. Garnacha has staged a huge comeback in esteem in recent years, due to the efforts of such proponents as our own Frontonio. Maybe it is now the turn of Bobal, which can turn out utterly delicious wines like this one. Juicy and smooth, but with a reassuring lick of asperity, it evokes blackcurrants on the nose and offers sheer pleasure on the palate. Ridiculously cheap for the quality, especially considering the well-known additional expense of organic production.
