Finca Los Halcones, Vega Tolosa

£12.99

Although it’s the second most planted grape in Spain, Bobal is not exactly a household name even in its home country. Native to the Valencia region, it’s now more widely planted, and whilst Bobal wines are usually unremarkable, there are exceptions. When the grapes come from old vines and/or from higher altitudes the results are impressive. Along with the very highly regarded ‘Icon’ (bin 965) Finca Los Halcones is such a wine, aged for 2 years in new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Garnet coloured with violet edges and lush aromas of blackberry, toffee and black pepper. The flavours don’t disappoint: plum, prune (and other dried fruits) and spice, backed up by firm tannins. Bronze Medal International Wine Challenge 2020: “Dark red with a blend of black and red berry fruit with a touch of liquorice. Big, firm tannins and a long finish”.
