OTHER - Deep in colour, with inky complexity and a core raspberry fruit. 
Harry Eyres, Country Life. 12th July 2017. 

WA - I tasted the 2014 Finca Terrerazo, as the 2013 was not produced. It is pure Bobal, the flagship red grape from this part of Valencia close to Requena, from the estate vineyards that have their own appellation of origin. The vines are dry farmed and were planted between 1945 and 1970 on very poor soils. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in 3,500- and 5,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in oak vats and barriques for 20 months. There is more freshness than the 2012, and it has a velvety texture, without the rusticity many wines from Bobal show. It's still very oaky and will need some time in bottle to integrate the oakhaving missed a vintage, I'm tasting it with less time in bottle than when I tasted the 2012. This is organically certified. 32,920 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2016.

The Producer

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.

The Region

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.
