About This Wine

In Spain, there is great reverence for the past.

Walk the streets of Barcelona, and this can be seen in nearly every modern steel-and-glass building one encounters. If you look closely, you’re almost guaranteed to find a small portion of the building’s wall consisting of the wood-and-stone infrastructure that was part of an older building that formerly occupied the plot of land.

The same school of thought extends to the country’s vineyards, where grape growers and winemakers have helped save varieties such as Carineña, Monastrell and Albariño from extinction. Another example is Bobal, once relegated to a small corner of the country and used strictly as a blending grape.

Over the past five years or so, Bobal has been revived and elevated by a small group of producers. That includes Alerys, which crafts Bobal in a rosé style that is fruit driven, fresh and respectful of Spain’s vinous history.
