Nodus
Bobal

 

D. O. Utiel-Requena

Organic Bobal

An exceptional red wine aged in barrels. From selected vineyards, we carefully choose the best grapes for this Nodus, a union of varietals and different lands. This wine is macerated in our cellar with patience and care, essential for this peculiar wine production, that includes phases of pre-fermentation cold maceration and brief alcoholic fermentations at low temperatures. The fruit and the toasty character of oak from its time in the barrel are perfectly balanced. This wine has not been subjected to a stabilisation process, which is why natural sediments might be seen in the bottle. Categorised as an organic wine since the 2017 vintage.

D. O. Utiel-Requena
The Nodus Bobal wine from Bodegas Nodus is an illustration of the adventures our native grape is experiencing, which is no longer a Cinderella but the Queen of sensational wines, as this one is. This barrel-matured red is the result of a meticulous production that includes phases of pre-fermentation cold maceration and brief alcoholic fermentations at low temperatures. It must be noted that this wine has not been subjected to a stabilisation process, so it may contain natural sediments.
