Winemaker's Notes:

BO ‘Unique Bobal’ is the essence of our vineyards. The essence of our passion for wine passed down from generation to generation. 125 selected casks to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Vicente Gandía Winery. 100% Bobal, 100% Passion, 100% Unique.

For many years, we at Vicente Gandía Winery have been experimenting with the Bobal variety to come up with modern wines of a high quality. At the outset the results were not particularly encouraging, and we had to reject entire runs that did not come up to standard. But then we learned that, by pruning young to reduce the grape yield per vine, picking from old vines and selecting the best grapes, excellent results began to come about. The secret lay in selecting only the best.

THE BOBAL VARIETY
The Bobal vine has large, winding leaves and medium-size, compact grapes of a very deep hue. It matures late on vigorous, fertile plants and produces rich, full-coloured wines with brilliant tones provided by its high acidity. In contrast with the past, better understanding of lower yield viticulture today is producing meatier, higher tannin wines which age spectacularly well.

WINE-MAKING PROCESS
Vinification of the Bobal variety takes place in stainless steel tanks, maintained at 28ºC and macerated for 15 days with the skins. Then wine is subsequently aged for 9 months in French Allier medium-toasted oak casks.

ORGANOLEPTIC ANALYSIS
This is a modern, elegant wine, with intense colour and fruit and rich cherry tones from its high acidity. In the nose it presents a range of wild fruit and toasted oak aroma. In the mouth the tannins are meaty and flavoursome, with a perfect blend between hints of fresh fruit and toasting notes, with a smooth, balanced, characterful finish. Serve at 15/16 ºC.
