Internationally, Bobal is an important and increasingly respected variety of grape, and in the region of Utiel-Requena it has been the most predominant variety of grape grown for many centuries.
Bobal vines produce large compact bunches of medium-sized berries and are extremely drought resistant. Bobal is also known to retain it’s acidity better than any other grape variety grown in a hot climate.
The best Bobal wines require yields to be controlled in the vineyard and ideally grown from old vines, these vines, tend to have their own natural production cycles.
Bobal vineyards of higher elevations – those over 700m above sea level are capable of producing some very impressive wines of superior quality - well structured, fresh and velvety smooth.
