The 'Old Hands' of Yecla have again made an absolute cracker this vintage. Organically grown by a collective of old farmers, this Monastrell (also known as Mourvedre in France) is picked at perfect ripeness giving a beautifully balanced and incredible value red. Juicy, plummy with fresh, cherry-skin bite, with just a hint of dried herb and spice results in a deeply satisfying wine that just keeps you coming back for more. L&S (Feb 2021)

*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.

This Spanish red wine is made from the monastrell grape that’s native to eastern Spain (it’s also known as mourvedre in France). As the name implies, it’s organically grown by a group of farmers who originally came together in a collective in Yecla in Murcia with a single-minded ambition to produce great wines. Subtle but spicy it brings a taste of the aromatic herbs that surround the vineyards to the table in a pleasing and balanced way, with lots of cherry and red fruit flavours on the tongue. And with this box being the equivalent of four bottles it’s more than competitively priced.John Clarke - The Independent (May 2021)

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.
