K&L Notes

A blend of Juan García with 20% Rufete and 10% of other varieties, all grown on granite soils near the D.O. of Arribes, this is incredibly interesting, lively yet rustic and tannic wine. Alvar is cellar master at the very well regarded Maranones winery, though he is originally from a village within the Toro D.O. (close to Arribes as well) which is why he has recently burst on to the scene creating some exciting, fresh, honest Castillian wines.

    From the Arribes D.O., which is basically the far western extreme of the Spanish portion of the Duero River valley before you hit the border with Portugal and enter the Douro Superior sub-zone, comes this delicious new arrival from Alvar de Dios. Aromas are pungent, mineral, just slightly reductive and redolent of red fruits as well as (and I'm quoting two of my colleagues here because I think it's right on the money) jackfruit and peach. Intense flavors are driven in equal parts by minerality, fruit, acidity and tannins. A delicious wine to expand your Spanish wine range.
