Tasting notes/pairing options: It has a nose of preserved lemon, lime flesh and white peach over a strong slatey minerality. On the palate the wine is crisp, dry and bracing with a fine citrus flavor and an intriguing minerality that makes you want to sip it again and again!

The producer/the estate:
It may seem hard to believe, but in 1993, when the brothers, Francisco, Javier and Luis Parra founded Parra Family Organic in La Mancha, Spain, the idea of Organic or Biodynamic certification was a new one. But the brothers decided it was a natural thing for them to pursue, given their long history of sustainable farming. In spite of the size of the business – Parra Family Organic sells around four million bottles a year – the brothers alone handle most of the office work and are intimately involved in the workings of the cellar and the vineyard. Everyone helps out with everything, but if pressed Francisco will admit he does a bit more in the way of sales and marketing, while Javier concentrates more on winemaking. Luis does some of everything and is very involved in his passion: raising pigeons.
