Crushed & Cured

Bodegas Gratias, Comboi, Vino Ancestral Rosado, Manchuela, 2022



Strawberry coloured fizz made with minimal intervention, offering up fine bubbles, aromas of red fruit and brioche notes. An enticing bitter dry twist on the finish adds freshness and makes this perfect to serve with food. 

"Comboi", is a local Valencian expression that is used when a group of people come together to have a good time, full of enthusiasm and joy, a bit like the wine! This is a Pet Nat lightly sparkling wine created "metodo ancestral" from 100% Bobal grapes

Artisanal in every sense, from the sustainable agriculture and minimal intervention to the ancestral methods used in the winemaking. Direct pressing without maceration in a vertical press. Fermentation in small stainless steel tanks at a constant 18°C for 3 weeks. Bottled by hand before the yeasts consume all of the sugars which would otherwise end the fermentation. The bottles are then rested laying down over winter until disgorgement so that the lees have more contact with the wine, at which point the bottles are inverted so that the sediment plug is discharged during disgorgement.
