Description

Consider this a reintroduction to Bobal, and its champion, Toni Sarrion. In the late 1990’s, Toni began a one man crusade to save this indigenous variety and coax it from obscurity and rusticity to the forefront of truly world class wines. Ever evolving and pushing the quality level forward, Mustiguillo has moved away from the use of overt American oak as seen in previous vintages in favor of concrete and French oak for wines of finesse & balance, realizing the potential of Bobal from the unique terroir of El Terrerazo. Mustiguillo was recognized for their extraordinary efforts by Wine & Spirits as one of the Top 100 Wineries of 2012.

75% Bobal, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Garnacha & 2% Tempranillo

90 Points Wine Advocate - The wine has gained in drinkability and is better balanced and focused. The palate shows also some chalkiness (all the grapes now come from vineyards in Finca Terrerazo, where there is a high content in limestone), and a Mediterranean character, but without heat. A very tasty and drinkable Mediterranean red.
