Tasting Notes:

The 2017 La Montesa is mostly Garnacha with some 8% other red varieties and comes from a warm and dry year that saw a very early harvest, up to 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrique for 12 months. It feels very Mediterranean, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe berries. It's juicy and lush, round and very pleasant, easy to drink. 670,000 bottles produced and will be labeled organic, very remarkable for such volume. It was bottled in May 2019.

Tasting Notes:

Lots of cherry and raspberry aromas with floral undertones here. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Fruity finish. A little tight now. Better in 2021.

description Producer information Professional reviews

This is a winery that from Alfaro, in the eastern Mediterranean Rioja, provides one of the last foothills of the Iberian, the rugged and saw fresh Yerga. In his hillside colluvium formed by sedimentation of the peaks, it extends La Montesa, Grenache vineyard par excellence. Rootedness and winemaking tradition on its soil clay and calcium carbonate, which also emerge even boulders of volcanic origin.
