Utiel-Requena, Spain

Javier del Blanco and his friend Jorge Navascues were convinced that Bobal could make more interesting wines than the rosés usually produced in Utiel-Requena. Old vines, gentle handling of the grapes, and minimal intervention in the cellar turned out to be the trick. Not really a trick of course, as they had partnered with Modesto Francés and the Valsangiacomo family, locals who already had the best sites in their hands. La Pinada comes from 3 hectares of a parcel of the same name. 60 year old bush-trained vines. Spontaneous fermentation in concrete. We’re just not used to wines this fresh and subtle from this part of the world. And the wine press has, rightfully so, been quick to recognize this impressive work.
