Vinessens La Casa Monastrell 2012
Deep cherry colour, with purple glints. Wild red fruits aromas like blackberries and raspberries with balsamic hints and liquorice. With a soft entry in the mouth, it has sweet and ripe tannins, well balanced acidity and it is easy to drink. This 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre) is from un-irrigated bush vines in Alicante.
Manual harvest followed by strict selection at winery, cool skins macerations previous to fermentation. One third carbonic maceration and the rest, conventional maceration of skins and seeds for 10 days. Malolactic fermentation and 2 month ageing in French oak barrel of 500 litres.
