Pasión de Bobal Rosado, Organic

MEET THE PRODUCER

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 producing blends combining indigenous and international varieties.


A Note on Sustainability 

 

Along with all its wines being certified organic and vegan, Sierra Norte is keenly involved in projects run by its D.O. that benefit local people and which defend the products of its region. In a wider environmental sense, Sierra Norte is developing a wastewater project by installing a treatment system plant to reuse water, as well as being involved in a photovoltaic solar panel installation project.


Production

 

Bobal is grown in loam plaines that are rich in red clay and miocence conglomerates. It ripens later than other varieties with young vines often used to make light fruity reds and rosé. Pasión de Bobal is the result of a careful selection of the best grapes from south-east Spain's indigenous Bobal variety located in Camporrobles within the D.O. Utiel-Requena region. Fruit yields are controlled in order to keep the natural ecosystem of the environment and organic practices are also employed, harsh chemicals avoided. Maceration of the grapes at very low temperature for 16 hours, in which the free run juice is obtained, which will be fermented later at controlled temperature.


Tasting notes

 

Pale, 'Provence-style' pink in colour with crisp red berry fruit. Nicely-balanced with clean, bright acidity, some minerality adding palate weight and a dry, fresh finish.

 

Food match

 

A stand-alone aperitif and perfect with salmon or grilled chicken salad.
