Natalie's Score: 91/100

Savoury dark chocolate notes with black fleshy plums with a juicy, voluptuous finish. Full-bodied and satin smooth. A huge crowd pleaser. The Monastrell grapes has been grown in Jumilla for centuries. The grapes for this wine come from 40-year-old vines at 700 metres above sea level and the wine was then matured in French oak for 12 months. Great value. This DOC wine is the silver label in the winery's lineup.

Monastrell food pairings: dark chocolate, heavy meats, blue cheese, sausage.

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.
