Pedro Olivares, Bobal “Serie Wild” – 100-years-old + vines

Excellent example of this indigenous grape from Utiel-Requena. From high altitude organic vineyards (1000 m) fermented wild, the nose has aromas of blackberries and raspberries which develop into notes of cigar, syrup and liquorice. The palate is full-bodied but also smooth with oodles of confit berry fruit and hints of cocoa.
Domaine Pierre Cros, Minervois Rouge Vielles Vignes – 100-years-old +vines
100% Carignan - Languedoc-Roussillon, France
The fruit may be dark but the wine is not heavy or extracted, the roasted pluminess underpinned by soothing stoniness.
Villalobos, Carignan Reserva – 70-years-old + vines
100% Carignan - Colchagua Valley, Chile
A medium ruby-red in colour. Fragrant aromas of plums, mint and chocolate. On the palate, lush and elegant with a firm, ripe texture and excellent acidity. The tannins are soft and the finish is dry but lengthy.
