PASIÓN de Monastrell Red
Sierra Norte
D.O. Alicante · Red · Barrel fermented
100% Monastrell

The grapes undergo a pre-fermentation cold soak at 14ºC for 6 days. This is followed by a 12-day temperature-controlled fermentation below 26ºC, before the wine is run off its skins. The malolactic fermentation then takes place, followed by an ageing in second-fill French oak barrels for 6 months.

A deep, cherry-red colour with a bright red rim and dark, smooth tears. Intensely aromatic with very fresh, ripe red berry fruit and toasty oak coming through well together with subtle spice and notes of mild paprika and red peppercorns. Also a sweet touch of cherry jam mingling with minty, mountain herb notes and wet stone. A powerful attack on the palate with gentle astringency, good length and fresh acidity. Succulent red berry fruit flavours, very spicy and balsamic, and a sensation of sweetness is brought by the toasty oak. The wine has pleasant tannins, good volume; it’s fresh and lingering. A long finish with red berry fruit coming through with smoky hints.
