GRAPES: Monastrell, Syrah
APPELLATION: Jumilla DO
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.
