IN STOCK
Grapes Bobal
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Valencia
Other Organic
ABV 13%

The Chaval Bobal has been a hit since we first discovered it a couple of years ago. Bobal is well disposed to producing supple and characterful reds and this is no exception. Plum and boysenberry aromas abound, whilst on the palate there is some lovely grip. A deep draught of woodland fruit, dark chocolate, earth and a whiff of herbs round out the finish. Oh and it is vegan friendly. L&S (Jun 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Organic, vegan and vegetarian-approved, this rich, peppery, rustic red is made from the quirky, indigenous, but really rather delicious bobal grape; fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve all its black-plum fruit, this young, unoaked red ticks all the contemporary Spanish boxes.Jane MacQuitty, The Times(Jul 2020)

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.
