Chain of Ponds Unchained Tempranillo Barbera 2021
Two wonderful varieties from different sites, handled separately to bring out their character and uniqueness, and finally blended before bottling. A bouquet of florals from roses and violet to crushed blueberries and mulberry picked from the tree. There is a hint of bramble and evergreen leafiness that adds an alluring tone with a touch of tanned leather and dried cinnamon spice. The wine is bright and vibrant on the palate with refreshing acidity that lifts and lifts again. Silky tannins round out the finish. This is a wine to get excited about; it’s totally delicious and the two varieties are interwoven considerately to create an intensely fun and slurpable drink.
