alejandro Monastrell 2018

Tasting Notes
Monastrell [maw-nehs-trell], also known as Mourvèdre or Mataro, thrives in the hot climate of the Riverland, producing a high alcohol, tannic wine with characters of earth, game and soft red fruit. The vines were hand pruned and picked, the fruit fermented on skins for 11 days before pressing and put to oak, producing a wine with a lovely depth of flavour and subtle oak.
