A rich and smoky wine with intense black fruit character. Great with rustic meat dishes or sausages.
Bobal is a red grape native to the Utiel-Requena region in Valencia where it produces muscular wines with ample, but soft tannins and forest fruit, floral and spice flavours.
Pago de Tharsys owner Vicente Garcia is considered the Godfather of Valencian Cava. His vineyards are on a higher plateau at Requena, giving a cooler microclimate to ripen Chardonnay, Macabeo, Parralleda and Xarel.O giving his Cava’s great balance and freshness. He also makes some great value red and white wines.
Valencia is a province located at the center of Spain’s sunny east coast, perhaps better known for oranges (and paella) than wine. Valencia’s administrative center is the city of the same name, Spain’s third largest and the Mediterranean’s largest port. Traditionally, the region’s wine portfolio has been spread across various styles. These include easy drinking reds, whites and rosés and fortified moscatels. The province also produces a small quantity of sparkling Cava.
Bobal is powerful and smoky and accordingly works well with smoked or BBQ meats and casseroles.
