THE STORY

Alicante is an old Mediterranean coastal vineyard area, on the East coast of Spain. It is composed of long, flat structured terraces with a marine influence, and is possibly the point of origin of Monastrell, one of the most important Spanish varieties. Historically, Alicante was a prime Mediterranean harbour and as such had an important influence on the wine industry.

Telmo Rodriguez's is Spain's best known winemaker. He makes wine across the different regions in the country and is very polished at working with a variety of different grape varieties. His aim of setting up in Alicante was to create a wine based exclusively on Monastrell: "We must not forget that a wine that is commercial, in the best sense, can also reflect what is best about the region".

M+Q NOTES

Leafy minty blueberry aromas announce this terrific expression of Monastrell. Floral, figgy and slightly meaty aromas lead to soft, wide tannins.
