Señorio-de-Iniesta Bobal Rosado 2016


SKU 03902



The Bodega Cooperativa Union Campesina Iniestense was founded in 1944. The members collectively own 7,000 hectares of vineyards, and combine forces and resources to produce authentic Spanish wines. Tradition and deep-rooted culture influenced by the Romans and the Arabs have given them an inheritance of thousands of years of viticultural experience. This history along with the gift of nature and modern technology have enabled them to offer outstanding valued wines in this part of Spain. The vineyards are located around the town of Iniesta, in the province of Cuenca near the border of Valencia in southeast Spain. The average altitude of the vineyards are approximately 700 feet above sea level. The vineyards are planted to 50% Bobal (from which Senorio de Iniesta Rose is made), 25% Tempranillo, 5% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Viura.

We were completely charmed by this dry Rosado made of 100% Bobal, an indigenous grape of Spain. Last year we first discovered this fragrant red grape when we tasted the smooth and tasty 'Pasión Bobal' red from Valencia which now sits proudly on our organic rack. And now we have found this dry Rosé made of the same grape and from the same area. It is made by lightly crushing the grapes after de-stemming followed by maceration for a period of 10 hours before de-vatting to obtain the free run juice, and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. We were quite impressed by its dry, clean, round, floral, vivid red fruit-driven style combined with its excellent value. Serve with everything from Spanish tapas to fresh seafood, grilled meats and BBQ, cheeses and more. When it first arrived, we served it with a steak and it was a delicious match!
