Castilla La Mancha, Spain.
Grapes:50% Graciano, 50%Tempranillo
UVA de vida is made with biodynamically farmed grapes from the estate’s northeast and southeast facing slopes. The grapes are fermented with only ambient yeasts in stainless steel tanks, before a rest for about six months in the same vessels. The wine naturally clarifies and is not filtered nor sees any additions of sulfur before bottling, and is then released as a fresh expression of this blend.
Tasting Notes: Dark in color, yet light in character, the aromas are a mix of spicy fruit, a touch of fresh earth, and hints of purple flowers. The palate is dynamic and bright, balancing between the spicy tannin of the Graciano, and the earthy fruit of the Tempranillo, offering bright red cherries, a bit of lilac, and a slight earthy umami quality.
