Front and back

Review:

Parotet is an ode to fruit; an ode to traditional grape varieties, the tantalizing red colour of wine, its soil and the freshness of Mediterranean mountain-lands. A homage to wines from another time. The fruit is fermented with part of its stalks using local yeasts in traditional stone presses, and then aged in 2,600-litre jars buried under ground.

Seventy-five percent of the wine comes from a virtually extinct grape variety, Mandó, while Monastrell makes up the remaining quarter. They blend perfectly to give body and shape to a wine which faces the sea from vineyards 550 metres up on the mountain slopes rooted in the sandy soil of this Valencian terroir. The Mandó grape gives it aromas of flowers, fallen leaves, and a certain sponginess while the Monsatrell imprints notes of maturity, intense fruit, and hardiness. What stands out most about the Parotet is the ripe wild fruit and hints of southern scrubland. Slightly spiced notes join subtle aromas of violets to surround the pleasantness of this wine with southern warmth, but it still retains its freshness. A balsamic wine with typicity but not an over-mature one. Its time spent in jars means the wine is bottled with its crispy and fragrant fruitiness intact. Gentle in the mouth, it is a somewhat lactic, or milky, wine which is easy and delicate when first sipped, though elegant rustic tannins and a delightful acidity soon appear on the scene. It has a bitter, dry finish as you'd expect with a wine which has a long life awaiting it.

The wine is called Parotet after the word in Catalan for a small kind of dragonfly. Just like the insect, it is a graceful, agile, and elegant wine — a faithful image of the wonderful landscapes which saw its birth.
