Red Boar Bobal - Spain
REGION: Galicia, Spain
Bobal is a funny varietal in Spain as it is often simply used to “bulk out” a generic wine, as it has lots of fruit and decent alcohol levels. It’s a bit of a shame, really, since it’s quite a jolly varietal on its own. Plenty of brambly, red fruits, and a nice smooth texture. It’s never going to win awards for complexity, but for an everyday drinker that just needs to hit a spot, it does well.
