Region: Caudete de las Fuentes (Valencia) SPAIN
Grape Variety: 100 % Bobal
Vintage: 2010 (Own Vineyards. Estate Bottled)
The grapes are machine harvested first thing in the morning to ensure that they are picked at their coolest. Following the initial crushing of the grapes the remaining must is then slow
macerated. Fermentation then takes place at a low temperature. The wine is then placed in French oak barrels for 3 to 4 months before being bottled.
Color: Deep cherry red in colour with a light violet rim.
Nose: A great aroma of ripe fruits of the forest, strawberries and raspberries. With a light vanilla toastiness and hints of licorice and spices.
Taste: Full bodied and fruity with well rounded tanins, great acidity and light vanilla notes with a touch of smokiness. A well balanced wine with a persistent finish.
Great with red meats, fatty fish, casseroles, tomato based pasta dishes and rice. Also ideal with all types of cheese.
Serving Temperature: Best served at: 15-18º
