Our Wines

Caballo Oscuro Cava White

Caballo Oscuro Cava Brut Nature

A pale, straw yellow Sparkling White Wine.  Exceptionally clear aromas of peaches and apricots, with touches of freshly-baked bread.  Luscious, well-balanced palate, with a hint of honey.  Excellent as an aperitif or with food.  Serve well-chilled.
Caballo Oscuro Cava Rose

Caballo Oscuro Cava Brut Rosé

Bright pink in colour, with a hint of terracotta from the ageing.  The nose has aromas of ripe berries, with a hint of strawberry jam.  There are scents of yeast and breads, with a touch of creaminess.  Beguilingly reminiscent of a fresh fruit pie, with a good balance between sweetness and acidity.  Serve well-chilled.
Caballo Oscuro white wine

Caballo Oscuro Viura Chardonnay 2019

A dry white wine with aromas of fresh fruits and a hint of jasmine and grassiness on the nose.  The palate has the weight of the older bush vine wines from the hills, combined with the freshness of younger trellised Viura.  A touch of Muscat adds to the aromatics to make an attractive and very drinkable wine.  Serve well chilled.
Caballo Oscuro rose wine

Caballo Oscuro Garnacha Rosé 2018

This dry wine shows a very pretty pale shade of pink, with touches of violet at the edges.  Scents of strawberries, flowers and a hint of creaminess.  Clean crisp acidity, with delightful fruit, medium length, – perfect for summer drinking.  Serve well-chilled.
Caballo Oscuro red wine

Caballo Oscuro Old Vine Garnacha 2018

A dry red wine, deeper in colour than most Garnachas.  Scents of fresh blackberries and cherries, together with a hint of black pepper.  Full and rich in the mouth, with a long juicy finish, which holds its presence without astringent tannins.  Serve at room temperature.

Caballo Oscuro Garnacha

Caballo Oscuro Reserva 2016

The cooked fruitiness of an oak aged Garnacha dominates, with notes of mint; herbs; and smoke from the ageing.  The palate is fruity and soft, but with a good acidity and a powerful structure to give a long finish.  Serve at room temperature.
