Bobal de Vinos The Spanish Wine Specialist in London & the UK

Bobal

“Second most planted Red grape variety in Spain, second only to Tempranillo, gaining in reputation as some winemakers are devoted to demonstrate its capability to produce quality wines.”

Bobal is planted mainly in the Southeastern Levante coast of Spain, in the Utiel-RequenaValencia, and Manchuela D.O.’s  It has traditionally been planted to obtain quantity (lots of bunches, big grapes) to produce anonymous, inexpensive bulk wines. However, since the late 1990′s a group of producers have achieved to produce fine, quality wines from Bobal (even as single varietal wines) by reducing its yield in the vine, treating this grape with respect and intervening as little as possible in the winery.

Why we like Bobal?

We like Bobal because it is native from Spain, it has been rediscovered as a grape able to produce quality wines, with freshness,  fine colour, fruit concentration (think dark berry) and floral notes. Bobal is used to produce red wines and rosés, given that it retains good acidity levels and it does not reach high alcohol levels.

Youd love Bobal if you like…

…aromatic wines with lush textures and appealing fruit character, velvety tannins and balanced acidity. When young, these wines display a quasi perfume bouquet, with red fruits notes. As they aged, Bobal wines display earthy notes and nuances of cedar, tobacco and wet leaves.

Also if you like easy to drink, fresh Rosé wine with red sweet fruit (almost like candy).
