A Glowing Monastrell with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. A Luminous red, shiny & spicy wine which is free spirited, daring, fruity & bold. Made mostly with Monastrell (90%) and from more than 15 year old vines, with just the right amount of Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) to enrich its spectrum of flavours.
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 arid and harsh environment of very cold winters, and extremely hot summers which concentrate the nutrients in each grape. Planted on limestone soil, with 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.
Manual harvest, in 20 kg boxes, intended to take care of the integrity of each grape, preventing it from being damaged, fermented 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 6 months.
Appearance is deep cherry red colour. Nose is intense and with a sweet aroma reminiscent of ripe red fruit, which is then completed with spicy and soft toasted nuances. Palate is also earthy with a medium body & soft tannins which compliments well with the high acidity. Certified Vegan.
Ideal serving temperature 14ºC.
