Beso de Rechenna Bobal Crianza 2016

A 100% Bobal wine which is ripe and fruit forward with bright acidity and great structure

This 100% Bobal wine is made from grapes grown on old vines, some 45 years ole in southern part of D.O Utiel-Requena near Valencia. In this area the vines are bush pruned, on poor soils, with no irrigation, giving low yields of juicy, intensely flavoured fruit. The wine is aged in American and French oak barrels, 75% of them new, for 8 months added extra layer of spice and complexity.

Tasting Notes

This 100% Bobal wine shows an intense, deep red in colour with bright flashes of lighter cherry red. The aromas are surprisingly complex, showing a fine mix of intense balsamic notes, fine cedar wood, and toasty aromas with a touch of tar and coffee, balanced by fruity notes of cherry and plum. Elegant and full bodied on the palate, rich in ripe tannins, with a firm but not aggressive structure. A bright acidity balances the mouthfeel, leading to a long attractive finish. This is a wine very much ready to drink now, but its structure will allow it to keep improving in bottle for some years to come.
