2021 Frontonio Psicodelico Field Blend

95 Points Parker's Wine Advocate
In stock
A unique field blend from old vines at high altitude in Spain's Aragon region. The exceptional Psicodelico is made by a Master of Wine Fernando Mora, who creates it by blending all the varieties (both red and white) that grow at 650m in a beautiful one-acre vineyard of 60+ aged vines. With familiar Garnacha playing only a minor role, this refreshing and compelling "garage wine" is unlike anything else you've tried from Spain. Drink now or put a few aside!

Its Origins

"Bodegas Frontonio is the personal project of young gun Fernando Mora MW, hailing from the Valdejalón appellation (technically an IGP, not a DO) of Aragón. These scintillating wines are some of the very best being made today east of Rioja and west of Conca, and they’re already garnering effusive praise from both Luis Gutiérrez and Jancis Robinson. Best of all, prices are very fair for the high quality—and the quality begins in the vineyard: Mora and his team own fifty hectares of beautiful old bushvines in rocky clay-limestone selected for high altitude and north-facing exposition to emphasize freshness. And although this is Garnacha country (Aragón, in fact, is thought to be the birthplace of Garnacha), the whites are every bit as fascinating and delicious as the red." Skurnik Wines

What The Critics Say

95/100 RobertParker.com, Luis Gutierrez

"The light red 2021 Psicodélico was produced with a field blend of late-ripening local grape varieties, where at least 70% of the grapes are white (mostly Macabeo) and the rest an old field blend of seven or eight varieties like Provechón (Bobal), Robal, Cribatinaja and Garnacha that were all harvested and fermented together. It's from a plot called La Sotera, with many different expositions and altitudes, an impossible slope. It fermented with 100% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in concrete with a 70+-day maceration, and it matured in neutral 30- and 500-liter oak barrels for 12 months. It's pale and bright, with a very expressive nose of blue flowers and fruit, a little exotic/wild, different and very attractive. It has only 12.5% alcohol and more balance, freshness and acidity parameters than in previous vintages—a pH 3.26 and acidity of 6.2—with a sensation of citrus freshness, very tasty and with very fine tannins. Lots of complexity and nuance here. The vineyard is beautiful, and so is the wine. 2,166 bottles were filled in October 2022." Drink 2023 - 2029
