(2022) From Alicante, this is 50% Monastrell, aka Mourvèdre, along with 50% Giro (a local name for Grenache). It was aged 10 months in 500-litre Allier oak barrels. Really nice and ripe, up-front red fruitiness on the nose, a certain energy and life about this. The palate follows on a similar vein, red liquorice edging blueberry and damson plum for a certain succulence and nicely weighted tannins and acids into the finish. Good value.
(2016) From Alicante on the southeast Spanish coast, this is made from Monastrell, aka Mourvèdre, and is a glorious big mouthful of sunny 14.5% alcohol red. It's a special parcel in Majestic in Autumn 2016, so there is limited stock, and its price falls to £7.99 if you are buying a mixed six. It's loaded with kirsch-like, cherry lift and red plum juiciness, a twist of smokiness and liquorice too. On the palate it is full and silky textured, a chocolaty density and the plush fruit supple across the mid-palate. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
