The Yecla Denominación de Origen (DO) is a wine-producing region located in the southeast of Spain, in the province of Murcia. This DO is known for its wine production, particularly red wines, and it has gained recognition for the quality of its wines.
The predominant grape variety in the Yecla DO is Monastrell (also known as Mourvèdre), which thrives in the region’s hot and dry climate. Monastrell wines are rich, full-bodied, and often characterized by dark fruit flavors.
Coming from Mediterranean-continentalized climate with its rigorous dry land of very cold winters, and extremely hot summers. Planted on limestone, a thick subsoil with the presence of carbonates and a sandy surface with clay formations which are poor in organic matter but quite healthy and permeable. Low yield irrigated & dry land which also contribute to the concentration of elements inside the fruit.
Manual late harvest, in 20 kg boxes, preventing deterioration at all times. The carefully selected optimal grape bunches are subjected to delicate extraction, the must then starts its fermentation process in stainless steel tanks at 24 degrees Celsius and macerated for 21 days before its malolactic conversion. Aging is done in French Allier oak barrels for a minimum period of 14 months.
Appearance is deep cherry red color with a garnet rim. Nose is reminiscent of ripe & liquorice red fruit, a scent that is also full of spices such as pepper, cloves & nutmeg which makes for a very suggestive combination.
