"Truly our best red wine: soft, round, full and yet subtle. Partly matured in large French oak barrels and partly in a concrete egg! My great love for evenings of fun. This limited edition is our ode to the bobal grape!" Derrick Neleman
The bobal grape has long remained anonymous. A fighter, with thick skin and long toes. We make a wine full of promise, an ode from us to the bobal grape. The grapes for this wine come from soil that is so old that dinosaurs can still be found on it. The grapes ripen very late, harvesting is still possible at the beginning of November. With the right minerality you experience fragrant dark red fruit and a light spiciness. Delightful aromas of red flowers, plums and black currants on the nose. A perfect representation of the terroir, really a very special wine.
We taste a lot of Bobal in this wine: lots of dark fruit, lots of flavor and a good balance between sweet and sour. Mild tannins in the aftertaste with some chocolate and blackberry jam. This dark savory wine goes well with the dark hoisin and black bean sauce. With the reduced, sticky and fresh, sweet and sour sauce of the aubergine, the wine turns out to be nice and refreshing.go to the recipe
"An impressively juicy and lively bobal with dark-cherry aromas and flavors in abundance. The succulent palate has plenty of fresh dark-plum flavor. Drink or hold."
