Description · Bodega de Moya

Maria de Moya 2016 (Merlot)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Cherry red with garnet glints.
  • Nose: Pleasurably aromatic, ripe black fruit forward and hints of cedar, figs, spices, tobacco, and vanilla.
  • Mouth: Rich and intense yet fresh, fine-bodied and balanced, well-integrated tannins. Flavorsome black fruits with cocoa, toasted notes of leather and spice into the warm finish.

APPELLATION: Valencia

VINEYARD: Bodega De Moya extolls the vineyards of Valencia, its aim to capture the essence of the Spanish Mediterranean Levante while creating ‘affordable luxury': complex, rich wines at accessible prices. Vineyards are 850 meters above sea level on sloped hillside. Ecological Viticulture. Poor, sandy, pebbly loam. Vines of fifteen to forty years.

GRAPES: 90% Bobal, 10% Merlot

AGEING: Barrel aged twelve months in French oak (35% first passage).

PREPARATION: After vineyard selection at harvest, grapes are cooled to 4°C for 24 hours, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and wooden casks. Fermentation and maceration of 26 to 34 days. Only free run wine is used. Bobal grapes were traditionally used for rosé wines, as perceived rusticity and difficult tannins were challenging for red production. However, the modern advantages of Bobal, including well-balanced pH requiring no adjustments during vinification; drought resistance; production of deeply coloured reds as a source of body and colour; and high antioxidant content, have led producers such as De Moya to eagerly overcome any challenges.

PAIRING: Lamb, game, red meats, autumn and winter foods. You might enjoy Maria de Moya 2016 with a chicken, bean, and chorizo casserole.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16-18°C

ALCOHOL: 14.5%

Maria 2015
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. Smells a lot of oak.A very powerful red.
A wine to be paired with "Tapas".
We drank with another couple.

This Bobal is very pleasing to the eye. Scents of red roses.Acid, fresh, light.
The Bobal matches quite good with game meats.
We tested it in a dinner Party.
