Bodega Carres Membrillera Bobal Old Vines (750ml)
Located in Utiel-Requena, province of Valencia, between the Mediterranean coast and La Meseta. Jose Luis is the third-generation winemaker of this family run winery. He produces organic wines, following biodynamic methods.
The wine is made from the native and local Bobal grape, from vines which are 35 to 100 years old, on terrain that is slightly inclined towards a high central plateau at an altitude of approximately 800 metres. The grapes are strictly selected from the estate vineyards. Wind flows permanently across the vineyards naturally helping combat fungal diseases. No chemicals are needed thanks to the privileged location plus Jose Luis’ prevention methods and constant care of the vines. Neither copper nor sulphur is applied in the soil. The wine is dark with chewy fruit and tannins, spicy notes and juicy acidity.
