REGION: Navarra, Spain
As the lands starts to rise, inland northwest of Valencia, you will find Roselia Molina heading up Bodegas Altolandon. The property consists of 120 hectares with the winery resting right in the centre, not only making it aesthetically satisfying but also extremely practical. At 1,100 metres above sea level, the altitude serves to benefit the grapes - cooler nights keeping acidity levels as they should be despite the searing heat during the day. Bobal is an unfashionable grape making something of a resurgence from bulk wine to quality, and this shows why. Supremely well-balanced fruit, spice and body.
