About the Icons
A Monthly Wine Club Selection
This delicious red is a blend made from of 55% old-vine Monastrell (AKA Mourvèdre), 30% Garnacha and 15% Syrah from head-trained (bush) vines. The grapes were hand-harvested and given a pre-fermentation cold maceration, followed by a temperature-controlled fermentation for 2 weeks in small stainless-steel vats. The resulting wine underwent malolactic fermentation in 225L French oak barrels (Monastrell and Syrah), and in 300L American oak (Garnacha), for a total of is 6 months in oak
Rich aromatics of dark fruit and garrigue. The palate bursts with loads of red and black fruit and a touch of spice. This wine shows great structure and really over-delivers for the price. The long, layered ﬁnish comes to a charming close with ﬁne-grained tannins.
