World Wine – “Unusually for a new wave producer, Tom Payaubert still favours the traditional style of pan-regional blending: 50% Garnacha from Monte Agudo in the Rioja Baja and 40% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano from Ábalos in the Rioja Alta. Aged in old foudres, it’s a subtle, raspberry and redcurrant-perfumed red with appealing texture.” 91 points, Tim Atkin MW

About This Wine

Bozeto means ‘sketch’ or ‘outline’, and as the name implies this is Tom Puyaubert’s entry-level wine. It’s been designed as a lively, easy-drinking introduction to the range, and takes in a pan-regional expression of Rioja’s three principal grape varieties.

While most entry-level wines from this region today are based on Tempranillo (a variety both easier and more profitable to grow), here Garnacha represents 60% of the blend. This Garnacha hails from the sandy, river stone terroir of El Agudo—a 60-year-old plot at Alfaro on Monte Yerga (in Rioja Oriental). The Tempranillo is drawn from a selection of mature vines in Ábalos (high county Rioja Alta), and there is also some Ábalos Graciano, adding freshness and finesse. Puyaubert ferments this wine in a combination of concrete and steel tank, then ages it for six months in concrete and 5,000-litre oak vats. These days, Tom includes a measure of semi-carbonic maceration for extra buoyancy.

Wines of Spain

With 2.9 million acres of land planted in wine grapes, Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation and second largest producer in the world. Many styles of wine are produced in the country most of which are based on native grape varietals.

The two most famous regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero for their Tempranillo production. Rioja Tempranillo (the classic) will be lighter and fresher with red fruit flavours as compared to those from Ribera del Duero that are often deep purple, higher in alcohol with more tannins and intense black fruit character. Rioja is also known for producing Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from the indigenous Viura varietal.

In the Catalonia region, Spain is recognized for making a sparkling wine in the traditional method but using native grape varieties. This is called Cava. Priorat, a subregion within Catalonia specializes in making still red blends of Garnacha, Carignan and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in a bold and full-bodied style. Together with Rioja, wines from Priorat have achieved DOCa/DOQ status signifying their quality.

Sherry is Spain’s famous fortified wine which can either be completely dry, lusciously sweet or somewhere in between. This is made in the southern region of Jerez.

Other notable Spanish wine styles include: Monastrell (AKA. Mataro/Mourvèdre), produced in the Jumilla region and refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo from north western Galacia.
