Country: Spain

The Bodega Pirineos Somontano Moristel is an interesting wine on many fronts. First of all it uses the ancient, indigenous grape called Moristel which is only found in the Pyrenees mountains of Spain. Secondly, most of the Moristel vines are found in the little-known appellation of Somontano. Thirdly, the Bodega Pirineos started life as a cooperative of families in the valley. This cooperative was eventually turned into a private company which is now one of the largest producers in this appellation.
The wine exhibits berry and cherry flavours dressed in a subtle velvet coat which marries well with many Spanish foods.
