This wine from family owned Bodegas Sierra Norte is elaborated using 100% Bobal grapes coming from older than 60 years old vines. Organic wine.
A very deep black cherry colour with a light-purple rim. On the nose, nice red berry and black fruit aromas, such as strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants are underpinned by creamy, slightly toasty oak, together with touches of spice and liquorice. Very flavoursome on the palate, fruit-forward, with rounded tannins, good acidity and slight hints of vanilla, smoke and toast. A wine with both individual character and harmonious balance.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards grown in a balanced, caring and sustainable way. The vineyards’ soils carry great importance, being very active with good biological conditions which favour a fast assimilation of reincorporated organic matter. This enables full terroir expression.
Excellent with hearty meals such as red meat, game or duck. Also with strong cheese, pâtés, rice dishes or pasta with sauce.
