Atance Bobal Valencia, Spain 2019Regular price $14.00
Bobal is one of the more aptly named grapes we think; a round, jovial, bouncy sort of fella, just like it sounds. It also happens to be the 2nd most planted red grape in Spain! This one comes from organically grown old vines, planted in Valencia where it enjoys the cooler climate of an 800 m altitude.
Allowed to fully ripen and then aged in concrete and large old oak foudres, the texture and buoyancy of this agreeable fruit is left intact. We get both red and dark fruit with a fleshy, brambly mouthfeel and spicy finish. Pleasant, easy-going tannins make this red the kind of company you want to invite over anytime!
Food Ideas: Smoked chicken quarters w/German potato salad, chorizo and mussels, citrus-marinated beet salad, BBQ brisket
