Description

An impressive, rich spicy red - approachable with lush, ripe fruit and toasty oak balanced by fresh acidity and rounded tannins.

Producer Details

The 67 hectare Finca Fuenteseca estate lies in Utiel Requena, a high, rugged plateau, nearly 1,000 metres above sea level just inland from Valencia. The combination of hot, dry summers, cold nights and poor, limestone soil make the area relatively free of vine diseases and so ideal for organic farming. The entire estate is now dedicated to organic production and produces a crisp white and a concentrated, spicy red, each combining a local variety with an international one.

In the Vineyard

Produced from the oldest, low-yielding Bobal vines on the Fuenteseca estate.

In the Winery

The wine was treated to malolactic and six months ageing in French barriques.

Press Quotes

2009 Vintage: "Subdued dark fruit nose leads to a juicy palate of dark cherry fruit." Decanter 'The Results' edition, October 2011

2009 Vintage: "The purple-coloured 2009 Pasion de Bobal (100%) went through malolactic fermentation in barrel followed by 6 months ageing in new French oak. Fragrant raspberries, exotic spices, incense, and lilacs inform the nose of this racy, pleasure-bent offering that over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 4 years. 91 points." Jay Miller, eRobertParker.com, June 2011

Awards
