Tasting: This wine from Bodegas Bhilar falls under the Struggling Vines label, led primarily by Melanie Hickman, and named after their late four-legged friend Hapa. Bhilar’s vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically with Demeter certification upcoming. There is great freshness and perfume in this wine, very typical of the wines of Bhilar, the palate shows wild red berries, forest fruits, layers of spice and tightly wound but perfectly balanced tannins.
