(2016) Bobal is a very widely planted grape variety here in Spain, but often confined to fairly rustic local wines. This is a bit different, the nose vinous (black fruits, a touch of spice) but the palate surprisingly smooth and fresh, a hugely juicy character, the tart skins of plums and cherries, then the sweet flesh too, a grip of tannin is there just to give a bit of definition and the dry, savoury but fruity finish makes it widely mid-week food friendly. Only £7.20 to Daily Drinker members.
(2015) Alc 11.5%. 100% Bobal, the grapes sourced from vineyards 600-900m above sea level. Deep cranberry juice colour, a touch of earthiness and glossy red fruits, flavoursome though a touch of boiled sweet character and touch of flattering sugar slightly detracts.
