2015 Monastrell Ecológico Bodegas La Purisima

Grapes Monastrell
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Jumilla
ABV 14%

This new arrival from the sunny south west is a joy to drink. Organically made by our new friends in Valencia this pure Monastrell is surprisingly well defined. There is a delicious, quite serious texture - some tight lines and a firmer feel than you might expect. Understated, shapely and with gorgeous deeply dark fruit. The group of established, small-holding farmers who work together to make this brilliant wine are referred to as the Old Hands that give the wine its name. L&S (Mar 2017)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Bodegas La Purisima

Bodegas La Purísima is a collective of small-holding farmers who work together producing pure, bright fruit from the heart of the Yecla DOC. Monastrell (Mourvedre) is king here and between them they have over 100 HA of ungrafted Monastrell vines. Farmed like a cooperative the winery is overseen like a single estate by the fabulous María Teresa Ruiz González. Together they aim to be making the best wines in this exciting region of Yecla. The quality here is so impressive, organic, deliciously drinkable wine at such an incredible price - the Old Hands really know what they are doing and this punches well above its weight.

Blackcurrant, mint, clove - lots to enjoy here at a very reasonable price. Totally ripe and balanced. Rating: 15 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2017)
