Reto 2020, Albilla, DO Manchuela

22.00

Reto is made from Albilla, a grape that has mostly neutral flavours, with a light perfume aroma, and a smooth quality to the wines, owing to its high glycerol content. Reto is from DO Manchuela in Castila la Mancha, which is on a high plateau that reaches an elevation of more than 1,000 m. It was granted DO status in 2000.

Juan Antonio Ponce began his Bodegas Ponce in 2005, at the age of 23. He works biodynamically in the vineyard, and in the winery he takes a natural approach, using low levels of sulphur. The winemaking process begins with hand harvesting. The bunches of grapes are then chilled and fermented whole-bunch, with the stems, in a type of fermentation known as “remango”, which was once popular in Rioja.

On the nose, this wine has reductive smoky, flinty notes and benefits from aeration. It is tight and mineral on the palate with lively, fresh acidity and that characteristic saline finish. It is elegant and smooth and will develop well in bottle. This is a great match to oysters, cod, hake or lobster dishes or any creamy shellfish pasta dish. Try also with omelette or risotto Milanese.
