Availability: In stock
Produced by Chimo Bayo and Toni Arráez, this Spanish red wine is a single varietal Bobal, an indigenous grape from the Spanish Levant.
It is made from vineyards planted in clayey soils at an altitude around 700 metres, growing under a Continental climate softened by the influence of the nearby Mediterranean Sea.
Produced by Bodegas Arráez, the grapes were meticulously selected, fermented in stainless steel tanks and traditionally vinified.
Finally, HU-HA de Chimo Bayo 2017 was aged for 5 months in American and Hungarian oak barrels.
Drink this red wine from Valencia until 2020.
Incidentally, there is a mildly amusing story behind the peculiar name of this Spanish red wine produced in the Valencia DO.
During the 80s and the 90s, the region of Valencia was the center of the then emergent Spanish techno scene. People from all over the country gathered there to party hard, originating what became known as "La ruta del Bakalao" (Bakalao being the Spanish version of techno.)
Of the many DJs who became famous at that time, one name stood above the rest: Chimo Bayo. Today, his dance floor war cry is still remembered by almost every Spaniard over 40. That war cry was, as you have probably already guessed, HU HA!!
Clean and bright, the red wine HU-HA de Chimo Bayo and Bodegas Arráez has an intense cherry colour with some violet glints.
Very fresh aromas of black and red fruit, nuanced by some toasted and spicy notions. On the background, this Bobal from Valencia suggests notes of liquorice and herbs.
Savoury and fresh, HU-HA de Chimo Bayo is more elegant than one would expect. Ripe fruit and delicate notes of cinnamon and clove, with a nice texture and a good acidity. This techno wine by Bodegas Arráez has a long, juicy finish with remembrances of liquorice and aromatic herbs.
