2020 Bodegas y Viñedos Monfil

IN STOCK
Grapes Garnacha, Syrah
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Cariñena
ABV 13.5%

There is a joyous nose of dark cherry, damson and raspberry, all backed by a lively pepperiness. Smooth and supple and not in any way heavy (which is something lesser Garnachas can lean towards). L&S (May 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.

I came across this exuberant garnacha when I was tasting wine at Lea & Sandeman in Notting Hill the other day and it struck me as the most incredible bargain at £8.95 (or £8.25 if you’re buying a case).

It’s packed with super-ripe black cherry fruit but not overjammy or alcoholic (garnacha - or grenache as it’s called in France and elsewhere - often tops 14.5% but this is only 13.5%). And it has a surprisingly dry finish.

It comes from the Cariñena region of Spain which is one of the country's oldest wine regions but is made very much in the modern Spanish style.

It would be brilliant with a barbecue, especially with pork ribs and also with chorizo - anything meaty, basically. I’d also be inclined to pop it in the fridge for half an hour before drinking it.

Bodegas y Viñedos Monfil

This family run Bodega has been growing grapes in the Campo de Cariñena since 1945, but only bottling their own wines since 2004 when the three siblings Victor, Maria and Ana took the reins. With beautiful, very old vineyard holdings the fruit they grow is incredible on their gnarly old bush vines. Great quality wine being made here offering stunning value. The Cariñena DO was created in 1932, making it one of the oldest protected growing regions of Europe, at the same time as being the largest vineyard area in the northern region of Aragón.
