The Gavarres, a mountain range in Spain’s Costa Brava region 30km from the sea, is where Maria Polanco and Guy Jones founded Sota els Àngels. They’re way up there on the north face of the mountain, surrounded by a cork forest, with their biodynamically-farmed 3.25 hectares of vineyards. Fredi Torres, an accomplished winemaker in Priorat, makes the wine for Maria and Guy for this Flow line of super natural, zero additive wine. This one is technically a red with the juice pressed off immediately to avoid skin contact and color, so you get a really interesting texture and a soft kiss of tannin. Deliciously fresh and energetic, with bright acidity and a salty finish – I want this with a pile of marcona almonds and some croquetas!
