OLD HANDS

2017 Monastrell Ecológico Bodegas La Purisima

Grapes Monastrell
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Yecla
ABV 14%

The bottle is hefty, the label is modern and arty and the flavour is arresting, with a degree of flair and a touch of drama, too. I dutifully made my tasting notes and then looked up the price on the spreadsheet accompanying the bottles. “There must be a mistake,” I thought. This cannot possibly be an eight-pound wine, but it is. Bright and earthy with violet and lavender notes, which sit at the back of the palate, there is a profound flavour of red and black fruit which washes over you and you gasp for another sip. Joy!

Yet again this collective of old farmers in Yecla, the 'Old Hands' have come up trumps. Organically grown Monastrell (Mouvedre) is picked at perfect ripeness and results in this startling value red. Juicy and loaded with dried herb and clovespice the dark, plummy flesh is richly satisfying without ever crossing the line into 'too much.' A side swipe of crisper, cherry-skin bite keeps this very much alive. Incredible price for a wine that gives so much joy.L&S(Jan 2019)

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.
