Gamey & earthy Monastrell (Mourvedre) blended with Garnacha (20%) for extra softness & great structure.
Grape Varieties: Grenache/Garnacha Mourvedre/Monastrell/Mataro
Style: Rich, complex
Drink By: 2015
Dense purple colour, blackcurrant and cherry are dominant on the nose with balsamic and mineral notes typical of the Monastrell variety. The palate has the perfect balance of fruit sweetness, tannins, acidity and toasted oak flavours.
Great for all meats, especially game meat stews and rice dishes.
Hand harvested from old vines and fermented in small stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for eight months in American and French oak of one and two years old.
Bodegas Arraez is a family winery with a long tradition. The winery was founded in 1916 and bought in 1950 by Antonio Arraez, who began to develop his own wines becoming one of the leaders in the Valencia region (Denominación de Origen Valencia).The winery is located in the town of Fuente de la Higuera. They grow indigenous grapes like, Monastrell, Tempranillo, Garnacha Tintorera, Macabeo and Muscat, as well as some international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.Today, the company is in the hands of Toni Arraez (third generation), a young winemaker with great experience acquired from working in Ribera del Duero. With the right people and investment in the winery, Bodegas Arraez not only competes, but beats alot of the competition from the more recognised winemaking regions of Spain.
