Details for Bonesvalls 2012
Bottle size and vintage
Bonesvalls is a Cabernet, but a coastal Cabernet, a Mediterranean one. Its origins are clearly Bordeaux (it is refined, classic, smoky...) but its spirit is unquestionably Mediterranean: juicy, mature, sanguine, fresh.
In appearance, Bonesvalls is bright and a dark Picota cherry colour with a rather earthy shade on the rim. On the nose, it has two sides to it but it should be decanted have an hour beforehand in order to discover them both: it exhibits a mineral, smoky character, Bordeaux style (flint, incense, aromatic dried herbs such as thyme) but it abounds in the glass with Mediterranean essence, with juicy aromas of ripe and fleshy-red (plums) fruit and a saline touch, which must surely be due to that sea breeze which daily flows through the vineyards. The combination of aromas is very elegant, attractive and 'feminine', a particularly notable feature for a single varietal Cabernet, a variety which we generally associate with having more of a masculine character.
On the palate it is a light, medium-bodied wine and dominated, more than on the nose, by a Bordeaux profile, with dry touches of nutmeg and cigar box. Overall it is fruity, pleasant, with a fine structure and good acidity, and the tannins are silky, allowing the wine to be enjoyed whilst still young. A liquorice background concludes the aftertaste, with its remarkable persistence.
A wine that pairs up perfectly with Mediterranean cuisine, with roast meats and stews cooked with herbs and typical spices.

From 1998 onwards, organic farming methods were introduced which had a direct impact on organising and streamlining the various tasks undertaken, and now reflect the significantly different way in which these win...
