2018, Jumilla, Spain Rich plum and blackcurrant pastille characters on the nose, with delicate vanilla spice and cedar notes. The palate is ripe, smooth and opulent with layers of pure blackcurrant, juicy blackberry, lush spicy plum and cherry fruit, minerality and fine tannins on the finish.
The Monastrell grapes used to make this wine come from forty year old bush vines grown in vineyards that are seven hundred metres above sea level to the north east of Jumilla where the soil is sandy, chalky and rocky. The grapes were hand-harvested and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards they are aged in French and American oak for around four months. Pairs with hearty meat and vegetable stews, rustic sausages and grilled meat
