About

"The 2018 Buena Pinta is a different red, as it's a blend of 85% Moravia Agria with 15% Garnacha fermented and matured in 4,500-liter oak vats. It's light, with 12% alcohol, and has very good freshness. It's pale, but not as pale as La Xara, and slightly reductive/flinty, a character of Moravia Agria, an ancient variety, but it soon opens up to reveal bright red fruit and high-pitched tones. This character is more obvious in cooler years like 2010 or 2013. It has a mixture of floral and peppery aromas and a pumice-like stoniness with something balsamic. The palate is light and the tannins are fine; there is good freshness and a supple, tasty finish. Decant in advance. This should develop nicely in bottle. Awesome value. 8,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019."

Product Description:

"Juan Antonio Ponce began his winery 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 dioxide. His philosophy is to make natural wines with wild yeast fermentation, to respect the local varietal Bobal and to express its terroir." -Importer
