Castilla-La Mancha, Spain
Here we have a delicious wine made from a lesser known grape variety, Bobal. Bodegas Gratias works 10 hectares of exclusively indigenous varieties, many of which they have helped bring back from the brink of extinction. An earthier expression of this grape, your nose will find green peppercorn, strawberry and cedar while your taste buds find blackberry, mocha and bing cherry with round tannic structure. This wine will partner well with grilled hanger steak, orange chicken or a portabello burger.
