The Wine

Land of the Bobal variety.

Bobal is the variety most widely-grown in Utiel-Requena D.O. Particularly suitable for making rosé wines of great freshness and reds produced using carbonic maceration, is undoubtedly the prime variety of the Utiel-Requena D.O. Another is Macabeo, which produces white wines of a greenish straw colour, with an intense and fruity aroma, also used in sparkling wines blended with the Tardana or Planta Nova variety, another local grape but more golden in colour and ideal for blending due to its dry flavour and greater acidity. Particularly fine is the mix of the above varieties with Chardonnay, the final product resembling a cuvee or cava.
