Bobal is not well known but is the second most planted grape in Spain! Bobal wines are known for their fruity flavours, soft tannins and velvety finish. If you enjoy wines like Pinot Noir you will enjoy Bobal.
This Spanish favourite offers cherry and red fruit flavours with earthy notes and hints of vanilla notes from oak. The flavours are big but not overpowering. Tempranillo is the dominant grape in Spain's framous Rioja blends.
Manchuela is framed by the Júcar and Cabriel rivers, whose sediments make up the limestone-based clay soils. Two large reservoirs to the north provide irrigation during the very dry growing season. Vineyards here are 600-1000m above sea level; the altitude has a cooling effect and combines with fresh Mediterranean winds to moderate the hot summer days. This helps slow ripening, resulting in white grapes that produce fresh, fruity wines with good acidity. Manchuela's red wines show excellent flavour, colour and mouthfeel.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
Great for food, medium bodied wines typically have alcohol levels below 14% and less oak.
Most red wines will have at least a medium oak level as it is an expected part of the taste of a red wine.
