Vintage 2009 (Vintage Rating 5/5 Stars)

There are a couple of things that make this wine so unique. The first of which is to understand what make the region of Spain that it comes from so different. Jumilla in South-Central Spain is land locked and part of the D.O. requirements is that the vineyards must be dry farmed. Dry farming means no irrigation and in great vintages this makes incredible wines of power and complexity. In bad vintages it makes wines with the flavour and aromas of old socks and wet dog. The good news is that this wine comes from a great vintage in Jumilla (power and complexity)

The second thing is the grape. This wine is made from Monastrell, which is also know as Mouvedre in France. This grape is mostly used as a blending grape but in the right conditions it produces wonderfully aromatic and complex wines. 

This wine pours dark purple in the glass and has aromas of ripe plum, blueberry and a delightful floral edge of violets and lavender. This palate shows structure and bright acidity which lifts the fruit flavours of ripe red berries and black fruits. The finish is long and shows some grip.

PAIR WITH: heavier pasta dishes, grilled red meats, hearty poultry dishes, roasted Turkey, authentic BBQ.
