WOW, this is an incredible bottle of wine. Monastrell is better known as Mourvedre. A dark charred oak, and rich dried cherry flavoured wine. I think its a great value for the money. Winemaker and partner Chris Ringland selected the grapes from a parcel of 40 year old vines.

|Winemaker's Notes - We selected the Monastrell grapes for this wine from 40-year old parcels in our estate vineyards. Here shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock, combined with an arid climate, produce the low yields required for wine of this complexity. The sum of the climate, soil, and vinification is a wine with rich color, abundant ripe fruit aromas, and a long, spicy, well-balanced finish.
