New in: Madame Bobalu

Introducing Bobal, one of Spain's most harvested grapes & probably one you've never heard of. Perfectly adapted to the hot dry summers in and around Valencia, you'd expect a prime example to display "a dark colour, chewy tannins, spicy ripe fruit and juicy tannins.

It has been a bit of a bumpy ride with the overall quality of output leaving many sceptical, seeing it retreated to table wine status.  Is it too much to expect more from this workhorse grape suited to bulk production? Bodegas Volver say no it isn't!

 

Freshly landed from Spain this month we have Madame Bobalu,  a fantastic new addition to the award-winning bodegas ranks with a lot riding on its shoulder.  Lucky for us, it delivers big time.

Expect that trademark deep cherry red, lush ripening fruit and spices to the nose before clearing the way for an elegant, slightly spiced affair that goes down way too easy. 

If you've never tried this grape, this is the place to start. And at this price, it really is a no-brainer ;)
