2017 Garnacha / Monastrell "Viña Ulises" (Gutierrez de la Vega)

Gutierrez de la Vega, "Viña Ulises," Alicante, Spain 2017

{sustainable} 60% Garnacha, 40% Monastrell

GLEAMING VIOLET-BLACK FRUIT, ZESTY TANNIN, BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED

Hailing from a most Atlantic outcropping of southeastern Spain’s Alicante, this blend of Garnacha and Monastrell represents an almost surprisingly lithe outing from a region often pigeonholed for rusticity and overripeness. Felipe & Pilar Gutiérrez have crafted wine in this coastal Levant enclave for almost half a century, employing labor-intensive working methods that blur the lines between forward-thinking and what one wishes were timeless common sense, always in pursuit of quality and deftly finding their mark.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled guinea hen thighs w/ berbere/chipotle rub & split pea/potato stew. Autumnal root vegetable paella of parsnips, butternut squash, & carrots w/ saffron, olives, & garlic.
