For the Maria Bobal of Bodega De Moya is an expressive cuvée of grape varieties Bobal and Merlot. Each red wine is a tribute to the women in the Larijssens family. This powerful cuvée is named after the elder daughter Maria.
This Spanish wine presents itself full-bodied, intense and in a dark ruby red in the glass. The multi-faceted bouquet opens on the nose with subtle spice aromas followed by vanilla, coconut, berries and dried fruits to jam. On the palate, this wine has a powerful, round character that combines perfectly with the aromas of ripe fruit and the soft, well-integrated tannins. The finish convinces with wonderful length and a fine berry-spicy touch.
Vinification of the De Moya Maria Bobal
This red wine is a blend of 90% Bobal and 10% Merlot from the estate-owned vines of Bodega De Moya in the mountains behind Valencia, not far from Spain's Mediterranean coast.
The grapes grow at 850 meters above sea level, on nutrient-poor sandy and clay soils with many pebbles, on vines that are between 15 and 40 years old. Yields are low and harvesting is done selectively by hand in 15 kg crates. After harvesting, the grapes are cooled to 4° for 24 hours. During the temperature-controlled maceration for 26 to 34 days in steel tanks, the cap is manually undercut. No pressed grapes are used. The wine is then aged for 12 months in selected French oak barrels
Food recommendation for the Maria Bobal from Bodega de Moya
This powerful, round Spanish red wine from the Valencia region goes very well with a traditional Spanish meat paella, pasta with somewhat stronger sauces, roasted or grilled poultry, red meat, Spanish ham or chorizo. At the same time but also a great soloist.
