Tinto 2020 (1 L)
90% Bobal, 10% Tempranillo
Old vine Bobal grown in the high elevations of Utiel Requena is the foundation of this tinto. Bobal is perfectly suited to make fresh red wines with bright aromatics of sour cherry, framboise and juniper. A light-medium bodied easy drinking fresh liter of delicious Spanish red wine.
Kiki & Juan is a collaboration celebrating the friendship between Kerin "Kiki" Auth Bembry (of Spain) and winemaker John "Juan Casa" House (of Oregon's OVUM Wines) that began on a Spanish bus ride.
With Kiki's connections to grape growers throughout Iberia and John's low-intervention background, they make wines from the historic Spanish region on Utiel Requena (located just west of Valencia). Their wines are certified organic, unfined, and vegan with no additions other than minimal sulfur.
The project started in 2019, though in light of the pandemic, John has acted as consulting oenologist via phone and even sent over a concrete egg and sourced amphora from abroad to use in the production.
