Monastrell ‘Mirasoles’, Finca El Olmillo

£9.99

Monastrell is a small, thick-skinned grape variety (known elsewhere as Mourvèdre and Mataró) widely grown in south-eastern Spain. It’s a tricky grape to grow and wines made purely from it tend to be high in alcohol, as when picked a little less ripe it lacks flavour and colour. To reverse an old saying ’out of the sweetness came forth a lion’. This lion from Finca El Olmillo is quite a simple, honest red, yet with a slightly perfumed style. On the nose and palate it’s rich and velvety with loads of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit and distinct sweetness on the finish.

Bodegas Parra Jiménez

Spain lagged way behind the rest of Western Europe in embracing organic agriculture, so the brothers Parra (Francisco, Javier & Luis) could be said to have pioneered organic wine production in sun-blasted Castilla La Mancha, even though their work began in the 1990s. With 3 vineyard sites in the region and a winery ‘Cuesta Colora’ with a capacity of 2 million litres, they are major players in the arid land of Don Quixote.
Vineyard size 160 hectares. Organic since 1995.
