GRAPES: Monastrell, Syrah.
APPELLATION: Jumilla DOP.
VINIFICATION: Elaborated with Monastrell grapes from old vines ( 50+ Years old) and Syrah from young vines (30 years old). Harvested by Hand, Fermented in stainless steel tanks, aged for 5 months in a combination of neutral 330 liters French and American oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES: Powerful blackberry aromas are matched by creamy oak. This Monastrell-Syrah blend is a driller, with strong tannins and more than enough body weight. Oaky flavors of dark-berry fruits and black plums finish with vanilla and lactic notes. This is rock solid from head to toe.
FOOD PAIRING: Grilled red meats like beef and lamb, wild boar chops or venison. Rich hearty stews, grilled or roasted pork tenderloin, pork chops and tandoori chicken or veal.

PRODUCER: The Gabriel Martinez Project started from the enthusiasm he has for his homeland, Jumilla, and his recognized expertise in the oenology field.
Gabriel bought vineyards from the area, based on his experience and knowledge. High vineyards and shady areas to get fruit and fresh wines. For the Monastrell he looked for vineyards with an average age of 50 years and with a large size as they are the basis of his project. But for Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon he preferred young vineyards
Gabriel elaborates real modern, fruity and elegant wines thanks to the selection of old vineyards and plots.
