Obalo is a unique creation that fully expresses the essence and distinctive fruitiness of Riojan Tempranillo, whilst maintaining a mouthfeel and structure more usually associated with more modern styled wines.

Tasting Note

Enticing deep and bright cherry colour. It is intensely perfumed with a bouquet of red fruits such as cherries and wild strawberries that are so typical from a great Tempranillo. In the palate it is gentle and velvety showing vibrant red berry and cherry flavours. This young wine is rounded off by a subtle and yet seducing spicy finish.

Food Pairing

It is a perfect match with steak, roast chicken, pasta and rice dishes as well as great with tapas and Manchego cheese.
