2018 Raul Perez "Ultreia," Bierzo, Spain


From the undisputed master of mencia, Raul Perez, who makes otherworldly wine from the wilds of far northwestern Spain. Ultreia is his simplest and most straightforward bottle, and an archetype of the Bierzo style: earthier than fruitier, firm grape-tannin texture, and remarkable acidity. A joy to drink.
