La Xara - 2022

Juan Antonio Ponce went home after working at Cia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez. The enterprise began in 2005, when he was 23, with only 11 barrels and a loan. Although Juan Antonio's father never made wine, he did sell the grapes to the local cooperative.Ponce states. "There are many prejudices in the area, and people lack self-confidence." Manchuela, followed by Ponce, is currently the most interesting appellation in central Spain. Made with Mediterranean Garnacha that was harvested early. This is a Garnacha in the "Gredos" style, bright, mineral, and flowery, ripe but not overripe.
