2017 Bobal 'Ecologica' Bodegas Nodus

Grapes Bobal
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Valencia
ABV 13%

We couldn't quite believe the price when we tasted this delicious juicy red from southern Spain. Bobal is the grape, not widely known, but on this showing it deserves a much bigger audience. Plum, blackberry, dark cherry fruit, a touch sappy, nice grip and then a hint of the hedgerow. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 L&S (Mar 2018)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

A thorough process during the growing period of the grapes is maintained to determine the optimum time to start the harvesting. Grape selection, controlled fermentation at low temperatures along with a long maceration process in stainless steel tanks. This process achieves that Chaval Tinto denotes the Bobal characteristic aroma of fruits.Winemaker's notes(Nov 2018)

Bobal. Vibrant and bright in the glass. Dark fruit and a touch of smoked game and spice. Really juicy and bright fruit with soft tannins and a balanced ripe sweetness of fruit. Surprisingly long finish, excellent value. Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 15.5 Alistair Cooper MW - 2019)

Attractive wild raspberries and meadow flowers lead to a palate that has a super juicy, lithe and vibrant, blackcurrant and dark-plum core. Smooth finish. Drink or hold. Rating: 91 James Suckling, 2019)

Bodegas Nodus

Adolfo De Las Heras Marín, acquired one of the most ecologically important wine making estates in Valencia in 1985.

The El Renegado estate was 540 hectares of forest and vineyards, of which 80% was planted with 40 year old Bobal vines. Adolfo pioneered the introduction of other grapes such as merlot and cabernet.

It was Adolfo’s son also called Adolfo who upon taking over the winery in the late nineties, revolutionised the quality of production, importing additional varieties such as syrah, chardonnay, cabernet franc and updating the Barrel cellar and bottling line, as well as transforming the old Farmstead into a beautiful Hotel.

From the late nineties until 2006, Adolfo De Las Heras meticulously and expertly shaped the estate and the winery to his vision: The use of modern methods and producing limited numbers of the top quality wines.

Thus was born Nodus, one of the most significant estates of the D.O.
