In a nutshell:
A complex, yet approachable old vine, low yielding Bobal from eastern Spain.
A cracking example of Valencia's local grape. The soils of the area are poor quality chalk and clay and this, combined with the long hours of sunshine and low night-time temperatures result in low quantity, but high quality yields. It has dark fruit and spice on the nose followed by bright red fruits, cedar and pepper spice and good, grippy tannins.
When to drink:
A wine to go with hearty red meat dishes, game, and cold meats.
