Monastrell by any other name is mourvedre or mataro - we are talking about the same grape. This version comes from Southern Spain, and is quite 'modern' in style. It's fuller-bodied showing lots of ripe black and blue fruits on the nose. The palate is likewise, together with some savoury, slightly grippy tannins, and a decent hit of oak. It's made for food and needs something protein-rich, and preferably meaty, to bring out the best of it.
Intense deep red cherry colour. Powerful in nose, clean and complex. Very attractive fruity aromas, touchs of ripe fruit and reminds of new wood. Well constituted in mouth, well-structured, lifely and tasty, taking shape, well-balanced and very good in presence.
