Drassanes Bobal Tinto, Utiel-Requena

Drassanes Bobal Tinto, Utiel-Requena

Almost all of the red wine produced in the Utiel-Requena region of western Spain is made from the Bobal variety. Vigorous and late flowering, an advantage as higher vineyards can experience late frosts, Bobal produces fruit-led wines with low to medium alcohol levels. Garnet-red, with purple highlights, this example is medium-bodied and juicy, with a blueberry and cherry fruit character showing hints of violet and black pepper.
