Bawling For Bobal
Tastes like: Damson. Red Berries. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Spice. Dark Chocolate.
If you’re not already bawling for Bobal then this brilliant organically produced example will have you baying for another glass in no time.
It’s super easy drinking, fairly lighter bodied and not too boozy either.
Utiel Requena is Bobal’s native homeland and for this wine the grapes are grown on slopes at an altitude of around 650m above sea level.
Here the hot days, cool nights and moderating Mediterranean influences mean the fruit fully develops its flavours at a more gentle pace.
This makes for a smashing example of a lower intervention Bobal wine with characteristic flavours of sweet spice and ripe fruit.
