There are certain wines that capture a season perfectly and this is the case with this bright, highly polished Jumilla that pairs beautifully with Spring. Welcoming notes of black raspberry, strawberry compote, hibiscus and green peppercorns greet you from the glass. The palate is perfectly juicy, with an energetic acidity that harmonizes beautifully with its mineral core. The finish is supple with a soft, smoky tannic bite that doesn’t distract from its crisp and refreshing profile. Best served with a slight chill and grilled sausages.

Stratum Wines is a project from Bodega Cerrón in Jumilla, helmed by the fourth generation of the Cerdán family: siblings Carlos, Juanjo and Lucía. The family biodynamically farms about 30 hectares of high-altitude ungrafted vines, mostly Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre). In the cellar, they work in a low-intervention style, with only spontaneous fermentations with native yeasts and mostly without oak influence. Sulfur is used judiciously and only at bottling.
