Appearance

The wine Bala Perdida has a clean, bright cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Intense aromas of juicy red fruit, typical of Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouschet), alongside notes of vanilla and cinnamon and nuances of underbrush and dry earth.

Palate

Joyful and savoury, this red wine by Bodega Arráez is full of red fruit, garrigue and spices. Nicely balanced, with a good acidity and a medium finish.

Our personal opinion

Joyful and lively, Bala Perdida 2018 pairs excellently with tapas, cold meats or medium-aged cheeses. A perfect match.>

When not suffocated by oak, Garnacha Tintorera produces highly-coloured, incredibly lively wines. This one is simply great!!
