Winemaker Notes

Las Cañadas' is a classy Rosé made from a blend of red grape Bobal and white grape Albilla. The grapes are directly pressed in stainless steel and aged in French oak barrels for six months. Unfined and unfiltered, the result is a wine with mineral elegance and freshness, with a beautiful creamy texture, a light bouquet of orange, clementine, strawberry and peach.

James Suckling
A seductive nose showing perfumed berries, blueberries and fresh violets. Engaging white pepper funk, dark earth and minerals, too. It’s medium-bodied with sleek tannins and a bright core of succulent berries. Delicate, pure and tactile on the palate, followed by a bone-dry and gastronomic finish. Engagingly mineral in the end. Bobal and moravia agria. So drinkable now, why hold?
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A clarete produced with Bobal and Albilla grapes, the 2021 Las Cañadas also contains some 15% Moravia Agria from a vineyard they purchased that adds some floral and herbal notes to the wine. But it's a wine that can also age, a traditional style in the zone, with 12.5% alcohol (moderate) and very good freshness (pH 3.12) and acidity (6.4 grams). It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 600-liter oak barrels, where it matured for six months. The profile changes with the addition of the Moravia Agria: it's more floral, keeping the profile of the traditional clarete wines. It has some herbal notes and a mellower palate and mouthfeel than in previous vintages despite having less alcohol, but it's more vinous, perhaps the backbone of the Moravia Agria. Different from previous years.

Bodegas Ponce, Spain
Bodegas Ponce Winemaker & Owner Juan Antonio Ponce Winery Image

Manchuela, a lesser-known Spanish wine region that is inland from Valencia, is where the Bobal varietal thrives, Known for its thick skins and rusticity, controlling the Bobal’s vigor is what makes for a well-balanced and interesting wine. While there are very few defenders of this region and even fewer winemakers that are dedicated to this varietal, Juan Antonio Ponce stands proud as a master and interpreter of the Bobal grape.

Juan Antonio Ponce began his winery in 2005, at the age of 23. He works biodynamically in the vineyard, and in the winery he takes a natural approach, using low levels of sulfur dioxide. His philosophy is to make natural wines with wild yeast fermentation, to respect the local varietal Bobal and to express its terroir.

Juan Antonio Ponce worked as the right-hand man to Telmo Rodriguez at Cia de Vinos Telmo Rodrigues for 5 years. During this time he was in charge of winemaking, vineyard management, etc. His father, who owned some land in Manchuela, decided to start this project with him.

The Moors gave it the name, ‘Manxa,’ which fittingly means ‘parched earth.’ La Mancha, the largest Spanish wine producing region in all of Spain, is one of its hottest and driest. Sturdy and drought-resistant white varieietes like Airen, Viura and Verdejo thrive in this environment.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
