Pirineos, 2021 Principio Moristel, Somontano
$163.20/ 6-bottle case
Made from the indigenous and very rare Moristel grape. A glorious dark ruby, deep, cloudy and bright thanks to low PH. Clean and red-fruited, it’s a quiet riot of salted plum, sweet currant and smoky-floral blackberry -cane tea. The palate is cool-tempered, lean and briary with cold wet-slate minerals. The citric-acid tartness is leavened by a mid-palate layer of dried cranberry. Aromatically persistent, and stimulating in the mouth.
