WINERY AND WINE OF THE COR VÍ ESTATE
Strong strains over 40 years old
Valencian winery located in Requena in the Los Isidros district, a medium-sized estate of 77 hectares at an altitude of 500 m above sea level, 22 of which are dedicated to the cultivation of the Bobal grape variety.
The vineyard was not very well cared for or maintained on our arrival, it became a big challenge. The vines were unfed and untended.
The brutal hailstorm that hit La Finca as soon as we entered it made things even more complicated. We put all our effort and dedication into getting the best out of the land and the vines.
Without skimping too much on costs, we do everything necessary both in the winery and in the field to get the most out of Bobal, a variety that is increasingly appreciated and sought after.
After more than a year of work, maintenance and rehabilitation, we have recovered some marvellous vines, resulting in our first wine promotion, Maloco.
Cor Ví Estate
The estate is located in the Natural Park of Hoces del Cabriel, declared a biosphere reserve.
A bed of clean and sinuous waters, among the cleanest in Europe, between cliffs and valleys of calcareous and saline soils with springs and deep wells of medicinal waters.
Olive trees and lands of medicinal and aromatic plants, which form eternal remedies and aromas of lavender, thyme and camomile.
Aromas and sensations that are reflected in the wines that their land produces.
Single varietal Bobal grape
The first of our wines, made with the greatest care and affection. It is born of special characteristics in the soil, due to heavy rains that delayed the harvest.
However, it comes from wonderful and strong vines over 40 years old, and that shows. After 4 months in French oak barrels and 2 months in clay eggs, it is now with us.
Medium-high intensity cherry red colour that despite the ageing time is still a wine of great liveliness. High intensity nose of ripe red fruit, candied cherry, blackberry.
In the background and adding complexity cedar, ground pepper, balsamic and mineral notes. Medium acidity on the palate with ripe, powerful tannins. Medium intensity of red fruit, strawberry, raspberry, clove, with a long finish differentiated by an earthy or mineral touch.
Pairing Mellow rice, white meat, red meat, fish stews and in general with any dish of medium to high intensity.
