The vine variety Bobal

The vine variety Bobal

This important vine variety for Spain, which was thought to have disappeared, is celebrating a comeback and is gaining in esteem.
Over 100,000 hectares of Bobal are planted in the higher regions of the Levante, especially in Utiel Requena. Bobal is a very difficult grape to grow because the individual grapes mature at different times and vary greatly in size. It is possible that overripe grapes ripe and unripe grapes are all present on the plant at one time. But when it is successful, Bobal produces very complex, and elegant wines that are full of character.

Generally intensive color, high in acidity, low in alcohol, fresh, not very aromatic.
