Bobales Perdidos 2018
Tasting: An indigenous grape variety in Spain’s southeast, Bobal has a chequered past. When over irrigated it can produce very large volumes of fruit, over cropped vines produce bland, sub-standard fruit. This coupled with its extremely good disease resistance has meant that it has been used extensively for poor quality bulk wine. However, in the right hands, with yields kept low, Bobal can produce exceptionally beguiling wines. An exceptionally vibrant nose of concentrated cassis, blackcurrant and herbs backed by a sumptuous palate of plush blackberry jam, spicy cassis and finished off with a hint of Mediterranean herbs.
