TASTING NOTES

(Cert. Organic) Partially oak-aged, a concentrated yet elegant and refreshing red of deep color. Varietal notes of wild mountain herbs, red fruit and minerals predominate. The finish is consistent and long, leaving a refreshing acidity in the mouth. Calls for a wide variety of grilled meats and vegetables.

PRESS

11 Pinos Bobal Old Vines (2012) - "Saturated ruby. Plum jam and cherry on the nose, with notes of pungent herbs and smoky minerals. Smooth and broad in the mouth, with gentle acidity giving welcome lift to the jammy flavors of bitter cherry, plum and blackcurrant."

11 Pinos Bobal Old Vines (2010) - "This dark ruby colored wine is made from Bobal grapes. It opens with a mild oak and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and easy going. The flavor profile is an oak infused red currant and gentle plum blend with notes of minerality throughout. The finish is dry, chewy, and its very dusty tannins and mild prune flavors linger for quite some time after the wine is gone."

VEGA TOLOSA WINERY INFO

Overview: Vega Tolosa was founded by the Tolosa family in 1905, currently with 150 hectares (375 acres) under vine. Of this, 100 acres is head-pruned Bobal, all over 80 years old. As Bobal has suffered massive uprooting in favor of international varieties in recent decades, this represents a cultural patrimony for Juan Miguel Tolosa, third generation of the winemaking family.

History: Manchuela lies to the northeast of the La Mancha meseta between the Júcar and Cabriel River valleys, and well above the coastal plains of Valencia and Alicante. It represents the ancestral home of one of Spain’s most interesting and underappreciated red varieties, the Bobal.

At over 750 meters in altitude, Vega Tolosa’s vineyards enjoy a wide diurnal temperature variation and constant breeze. Calcareous clay soils retain moisture and provide minerality. Minimal treatments are required in the vineyards, the viticulture in most years being completely organic.

Through low yields and careful winemaking, the purest expression of Bobal is the Tolosa family’s primary objective.
