Reviews and Ratings

From the Almansa wine region, Bodegas Piqueras, Castillo De Almansa Old Vines Reserva 2017 is a dry, full-bodied red wine blend of 50% Monastrell, 30% Garnacha Tintorera and 20% Tempranillo sourced from vines between 45 and 65 years of age from high altitude vineyards that are 750 to 900 metres above sea level. The wine is aged 12 months in 300-litre American oak barrels and aged in bottle up to 12 months prior to its release. Fragrant with ripe raspberry, plum compote, vanilla and subtle spicy aromas and flavours smooth and lingering on the palate. Pour with roasted meats. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
