Tasting Notes

The story

Hailing from Alicante, an area of Spain better known for holidays than for quality wines, this wine is produced mainly from 60 year old Monastrell or Mourvèdre vines, with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fluctuation in summer temperatures between day and night means that grapes mature steadily, conserving aroma and acidity. Vinessens is a small family-owned winery, styling itself as a "garage bodega" with sufficiently small production that they can adapt their wine-making techniques depending on each individual grape variety and style of wine.

The wine

This wine is big & bold in more ways than one - its 15.5% alcohol level is balanced by the deep intensity of aromas and flavours - without high alcohol, the Monastrell grape has little or no flavour. It cannot be said that this wine has little or no flavour however; it is packed with flavours - blackberry, blueberry and rich dark cherries with a savouriness (think game and truffles), combined with sweetness from the oak.

This wine is a dark ruby red in colour and beautifully fragrant - black fruits and a hint of strawberries. It is very complex and will appeal to those who like full-bodied, "big" flavoured, fairly tannic wines in a more developed style.

Food Pairing

Recommended to drink with game, duck, goose, steak and other red meats, paella

Producer's Notes

"Inky, cherry in colour, bursting with black fruit. Mineral and spices on the nose and well balanced and smooth on the palate. Full bodied and fleshy in the mouth with pronounced tannins and a strong finish"
