Product Description
Details

A varietal Spanish red wine made solely from old-vines Bobal, Sericis Cepas Viejas Bobal is produced in DO Utiel-Requena by Bodegas Murviedro.

The grapes were picked by hand, destemmed and gently crushed. Then they were macerated and fermented. After the completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, Sericis Cepas Viejas Bobal 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for about 8 months. The wine was filtered and stabilized before bottling.

Pair this red wine from Utiel-Requena with cold cuts and meat dishes.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Sericis Cepas Viejas Bobal is bright cherry with some maroon tinges.

Nose

Nice varietal aromas, typical of the Bobal variety. Red berries and liquorice, with bitter herbs, flowers, spices and a blood-ferrous remembrance.

Palate

Lively and crisp, this wine of Bodegas Murviedro is very structured, as is usually the case with Bobal wines. Still, this is by no means a fruit bomb. Ripe tannins and a long finish with smokey and earthy remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Cheerful, but not banal, the red wine Sericis Cepas Viejas Bobal 2017 shows that Bobal is a variety worth delving into.
