Appearing pale pink in the glass, with just a touch of fizz, this wine is a party in a bottle. The nose is all chalk, watermelon candy and tart white strawberry, with a slightly floral edge. On the palate, the tickle of effervescence is grounded by serious acidity in lock-step with a strong mineral backbone. If you can find a porrón, the game is to pour directly into a fellow reveler’s mouth from the highest height around, whether that’s just an extended arm, from atop a bar, or, if you’re fancy, from a balcony. If there’s no porrón to be found, enjoy this with good friends and back porches on a warm night.
