Bobal Ancestral 2018
Region: Valencia, Spain
Style: Ancestral and funky sparkling
This is a light red sparkling wine made with the wonderful Mediterranean variety Bobal. Aromatic characters like cherries, blackberry jam, fresh herbs. The style of fruit is lightly exotic and the wine is dry and very refreshing with foamy bubbles.
Bobal is a dark-skinned wine grape variety native to Utiel-Requena in southeast Spain. It is one of Spain's most planted grape varieties behind Tempranillo and Airen. High levels of acidity in the grape make Bobal a versatile variety: it is used to make deeply coloured rosé wines and has even been used to produce sparkling wine.
