Description

Bodega Mustiguillo has pioneered the revival of indigenous grape varieties, championing the red variety Bobal, as well as the equally unknown white indigenous variety, Merseguera. The latter makes up 66% of this blend, alongside 23% Viognier and 11% Malvasía. The result is vivacious, yet elegant. The Merseguera contributes a very noticeable minerality and a citrus core, while Viognier and Malvasía bring a slightly rounder texture and more aromatic floral notes to the blend. The three varieties are perfectly offset against each other. This would be a perfect match for subtly spiced dishes like ginger and soy salmon. Ready to drink now.

About this WINE

Bodega Mustiguillo

Bodega Mustiguillo

One word summarises the Mustiguillo message and that word is Bobal, one of the greatest and most under-rated of Spanish grape varieties, and now on the cusp of a renaissance in the Mediterranean vineyards to mirror that of the Mencia varietal in Bierzo and other parts of North-West Spain. Mustiguillo is a family project, dedicated to organic viticulture and the pursuit of elegance and finesse rather than excess oak and the like. A well-rehearsed mantra maybe, but one that does not have many adherents of such pedigree.

Valencia

Valencia

East-facing eponymously, and Mediterranean of climate and culture, the appellation of Valencia produces wines from a diverse array of styles and grapes, including, for the white varieties, Merseguera, Malvasía, Pedro Ximénez, Moscatel Romano, Planta Fina, Macabeo, Chardonnay, and to a lesser extent, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon; and, for the red grapes, Monastrell, Garnacha Tintorera, Garnacha Tinta, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Bobal, Syrah.

Wine is bred in the bone here, and at all price points. Two of the most exciting bodegas are Bodega Mustiguillo and El Angosto, which certainly deserve to be better-known.
