MONASTRELL 2018 DOP Jumilla
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer HONORO VERA
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Spain has some great, well-priced, ready-to-enjoy reds that offer great satisfaction. This much-improved Monastrell from Jumilla is one of them. It’s the fifth to date and the best yet. Deep red colour, it is slightly spicy, very bright and gently juicy with a ripe plum-cherry purée nose. Dry, medium bodied, slightly spicy, harmonious, gently juicy, ripe plum-crancherry flavours with a lively, crisp finish. Ready-to-drink - it would work well with turkey! It has 14% alcohol and now only 4 g/L residual sugar with lot number L-0101A1 on the back label. The 2017 was released on May 11, 2019 at $13.95. CSPC 167684
