Notes from the Winemaker:
Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence, and a long spicy well-balanced finish including toasted notes provided by the French wood.

FOOD PAIRINGS:
Rices with meat, stewed meat, stewed vegetable, mushroom, poultry, sauces fish, smoked seafood, blue and cured cheese, red meat, roast and baked meat.

Winemaking:
Grapes used to produce this wine come from old vineyards. Chalky and stony soils, poor in nutrients, are ideal for the growing of the Monastrell variety, with a low yield of about 2.500 kg/Ha. This wine has been matured in contact with French wood.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Monastrell from their own old, non-irrigated vines fermented in stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels for around 12 months. This is the first vintage that is certified organic. There were some challenges, but they resulted in a fresh and balanced wine with integrated oak and a juicy and round palate. They have introduced optical sorting of the grapes, and perhaps that's why there is more precision and purity. They cannot do manual sorting at this price point, but optical sorting seems like a good alternative. 2018 is a more difficult vintage than the 2017, yet this wine is better, juicier and seems to absorb the oak better, with just a smoky touch that reminded me somehow of a Northern Rhône. Really impressive." (LG) (9/2020)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"This juicy and vibrant, summer-berry and wild-cherry nose leads to a very plush and deep-set palate with a sleek, juicy and attractive feel. So vibrant." (7/2019)
