Tasting Notes

An impressive, rich red. Warm and spicy, chocolaty oak, with blackberries, plums and vanilla notes. The palate has lots of sour cherry and fresh plum, with delicate hints of spice and vanilla. Balanced tannins provide structure.

Producer details

The 67 hectare Finca Fuenteseca estate lies in Utiel Requena, a high, rugged plateau, nearly 1,000 metres above sea level just inland from Valencia. The combination of hot, dry summers, cold nights and poor, limestone soil make the area relatively free of vine diseases and so ideal for organic farming. The entire estate is now dedicated to organic production and produces a crisp white and a concentrated, spicy red, each combining a local variety with an international one.

In the vineyard

Produced from the oldest, low-yielding Bobal vines on the Fuenteseca estate. Bobal is grown in loam plaines that are rich in red lcay and miocence conglomerates. It ripens later than other varieties with young vines often used to make light fruity reds, and older vines used to produce more structured, alcoholic wines that can be aged to result in a more complex style. Fruit yields are controlled in order to keep the natural ecosystem of the environment and organic practices are also employed, harsh chemicals avoided.

In the winery

The wine was fermented in barrel before undergoing malolactic fermentation and six months ageing in French barriques.

Food Recommendations

Full-flavoured beef or lamb dishes, or with hard cheeses and charcuterie.
