The wine

The Corral del Obispo was first produced some years ago, as a fresh and fruity wine, exceptionally easy to drink. But something special in that first vintage left a clue that one day this wine would become one of the great wines. With its old Mencia vines growing in the vineyards of Valtuille, under the influence of the Atlantic, it was clear that this wine would become a dark, juicy, and solemn one. Without losing its joyful character, the Corral del Obispo has gained in complexity and seriousness over the years. It bears the same label as before and its light-hearted appearance may confuse you a little, but one sip is enough to realize what kind of wine we have here.

It has a picota cherry colour, without being too opaque, and red rims which promise a fruity wine. Aromas of violets, blackberries, and liquorice dominate on the nose, while its palate is juicy and wide with a wonderful balance between maturity and tannins. A sweet but bitter drink; juicy but serious. The six months it spends in 5000-litre foudres is just right to give the wine its structure but without affecting its fruity expression. Hints of ash, roots, and blackcurrants are also there in the background. This wine has a great future and a character strong enough for it to make an excellent companion for rich substantial meals.
