100% Monastrell - D.O. Yecla
Fresh, bright, juicy, raspberry-fruited Yecla with a lively mouthfeel.
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter edged. The nose is tightly bound and firmly packed with light, but bright, primary, dark raspberry and red berry fruit aromas, revealing a firm core of subtle herb, nutty and earthy, mineral detail. This is uncomplicated in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a firm and concentrated core of sweet, dark raspberry fruit entwined with herbal, nutty and minerally detail. The mouth is fresh and bright, the palate enlivened by brisk acidity, and showing light grainy tannin structure. The core has linearity and carries to a densely packed, long and sustained, lively finish of raspberries, black fruits, herbs, earth and minerals.
Match with pork, lamb and beef.
