Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 90% Bobal, 6% Tempranillo, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon

From high altitude, warm vineyards in Utiel-Requena, 100 kilometers west of Valencia on a very high plateau.

The Bobal varietal is quite rigorous and very productive. With dark, thick skins, it is quite interesting, producing a wine that is very dark (sometimes appearing black) with aromas of chocolate, cocoa, and sometimes blood. This was hand-harvested, fermented and aged in French oak.

Many of the old vines of Bobal are unfortunately being ripped out in the area and replaced by more popular varietals such as Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Mustiguillo's mission is to protect this indigenous varietal and nurture it into what has become, according to many experts, one of Spain's most fascinating wines.
