2018 Monastrell Ecológico Bodegas La Purisima
Yet again this collective of old farmers in Yecla, the 'Old Hands' have come up trumps. Organically grown Monastrell (Mourvedre) 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 (May 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Monastrell is known as mourvèdre in France, where it contributes the feral/savoury quality to bandol. Grown in eastern Spain, it has a more accessible quality, but there’s still a pleasing earthy quality. A well-cut wine that’s refined for a monastrell at the price.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Mar 2020)
Bodegas La Purisima
Bodegas La Purísima is a collective of small-holding farmers (The Old Hands) 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. Sauvignon Blanc has also found a happy home in this part of Yecla, with great results. 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 these two wines punch well above their weight.
