Daterra Viticultores 'Camino de la Frontera' Tinto, Arribes, Spain 2018

Regular price $ 31.73

In only several years Laura Lorenzo has become one of the main natural winemakers to watch in Spain. She lives in the small town of Manzaneda in Galicia and biodynamically farms multiple small plots scattered around the hillsides.  The Camino de la Frontera is from a farmer who grows organically in the region of Arribes del Duero. The small region that lies on the Duero River where it forms the border with Portugal. It's a region of hot summers and cold winters and a very rugged, hilly topography. This is predominately Juan Garcia with some Tinta Madrid (Tempranillo) and Rufete. Like all her wines it undergoes natural fermentation and then ages for 10 months in large foudres before being bottled. It has brambly wild black fruit that herbal and floral notes that remind me of the area in spring, covered with wild flowers and wild herbs.
