2012 Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce La Casilla "Estrecha" Manchuela (Previously $25)

SKU #1289167

Produced from some of Juan Antonio Ponce's oldest vines (75 years old to be exact), this calcareous clay parcel produces some excellent Bobal, the grape variety indigenous to the Manchuela D.O., which lies just a few hours southeast of Madrid. This wine manages to walk the line between rich fruit and tangy freshness, all while maintaining some serious structure as well. Real wine! Labor intensive viticultural work combined with detail oriented cellar work utilizing brief cold soaks, whole clusters, natural fermentations and malolactics and ageing in foudres, helps to produce these phenomenal, singluar red wines. For anyone not yet familiar with this producer (he is already a household name in wine circles in Spain and further afield!) these wines are well worth exploring, either to drink now (decant!) or to cellar mid-term.

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
