Fatum Bobal Tempranillo 2015

Region: La Mancha D.O.
Winery: MANUEL MANZANEQUE SUAREZ

Grapes: 50% Bobal, 50% Tempranillo
Vintage: 2015
Color: Red

The Fatum red wine is 50% Bobal and 50% Tempranillo, a varietal blend typical of the eastern regions of Spain. Elaborated using grapes carefully chosen for balance and acidity, and harvested at the optimal ripeness.. The fruit was sourced from low yielding, 30 year old vineyards. These vines are farmed in a traditional/sustainable manner with practically no chemical input. All fruit was hand harvested and destemmed prior to a 4 day cold soak to increase aromas and color in the finished wine. The wine was then fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks.

Vinous 89 (all stainless steel) Vivid red. Aromas and flavors of fresh red berries and candied flowers slowly develop a peppery nuance. Smooth and weightless in style, picking up an exotic and refreshingly bitter orange zest note on the back half. Closes silky and taut, showing good cling, no obvious tannins and a lingering suggestion of candied strawberry.
