What are wine spheres BOCHAS?
BOCHAS, are the first spherifications of wines that reach the market as exclusive products, unique in its range and by production. It brings the new “techno-emotional” tendencies of new cuisine or “molecular cuisine” to its maximum expression: a new concept that can be simply summarized as “The pleasure of eating wine”.
In pairing with different dishes such as cheeses, foie gras, vegetables, sausages, meats, fish, assorted desserts, ice cream cocktails, one will be surprised to recognise the excellent quality of the world-famous wines within the novel morphology of the product.
How to Preserve and Enjoy Bochas?
Store in a dry and cool place, with a temperature between 6° C and 25° C, away from sources of light and heat. Once opened, keep it covered in its own liquid cover and keep refrigerated. To enjoy all the properties of the product, consume preferably within 30 days after opening.
When it’s time to enjoy them, open the jar and extract the spheres with a small fork or the bochas spoon, leaving the liquid in the jar. Then dry them further if necessary with a paper napkin gently.
You can serve Bochas on hot and cold dishes, since the spheres are heat-resistant. If there are spheres left over, store them in the pot with their covering liquid covering them.
BOCHAS FROM 3 FORTIFIED, SWEET WINES
These three Bochas are the first ones to be ever produced, based on 2 Jerez (Moscatel and Pedro Ximenez) and one Porto (Ruby) fortified, sweet wines.
BOCHAS FROM 4 FORTIFIED-YET-DRY WINES
This second set of Bochas are based on all the trademark names of Jerez Wines, that all have some level of biological ageing. It might take a good level of understanding and appreciation of Jerez wines to witness how well their taste is preserved and vibrantly kept alive in these caviar-like balls.
