Review

A fine wine and a special one too, 100% Bobal. Intensity, density, maturity, warmth, freshness and finesse are the first and foremost features outlining the profile of this quality wine. Its colour in the glass is absolutely lovely, a vivacious shade of dark Picota cherry with thick tears slowing making their way downwards. On the nose, lactic notes bestow the sensation of creaminess, whilst the fragrance of aromatic plants, plus balsamic and menthol notes enhance its freshness and confirm its complexity. It is a rounded wine, which continually offers more and more with time in the glass, a complete wine.

Bodega Mustiguillo, headed up by Toni Sarrión, demonstrates with this wine that Bobal too can be used to produce good and great wines. They prove it with Finca Terrerazo and, in case anyone should have any doubts, with their Quincha Corral, which is outside the reach of most, not only due to its price but also because of the scant number of bottles available for sale. The rusticity with which we usually associate this indigenous variety of the Utiel region (Valencia) is converted here into elegance: ripe black fruit (blackberries), woodland aromas (heather, thyme), balsamic, mineral and smoky notes (incense, tobacco).

Finca Terrerazo is also smooth and creamy on the palate, fresh and pleasant, with mineral touches, mature and fruit-driven. Its velvety texture is lusciously rich in the mouth and its powerfulness comes over elegantly. Most definitely the wine to choose should you need to convince someone of the Bobal's potential, a fine wine which will indeed be thoroughly enjoyed.

Lo mejor en Bobal 100%

Un monovarietal exquisito de bobal. Elegante, refinado casi glicérico. Si alguien duda lo que se puede alcanzar con la variedad bobal, debe probar este vino. Ideal para guisos, carnes o arroces. A la altura de los grandes.

Nice Bobal

Very smooth and seductive wine, full of flavour. Needs opening at least half an hour before drinking. Big fan of the Bobal grape ever since my trip to Valencia earlier this year. Little bit different but all the better for that.

Un gran vino

Sin duda un gran vino, muy suave y fácil de beber. 100% recomendable. No obstante, puede resultar "demasiado suave" para los amantes del rioja.

Un vino sensacional.

Sin duda es una vino magnífico muy suave en boca. Perfecto para ocasiones especiales. Está a la altura de otros grandes vinos. Totalmente recomendable

Bodega Mustiguillo

Bodega Mustiguillo

The Finca Terrerazo estate was acquired by the Sarrión family in the mid 1960s, although the decision to make quality wines was not taken until 1999, and expressly for this purpose they built the magnificently equipped Bodega Mustiguillo. The estate comprises 90 ha of vineyards planted at an altitude of between 800 and 900 metres, with Bobal the predominant grape variety, although Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Garnacha Tintorera are also grown.
