Great new discovery: Parcelas Ecológico Monastrell

On the back of a recommendation from one of the Society’s leaflets, I decided to try this wine. I am a fan of Iberian wines and have been disappointed by most that I have tasted from Yecla. It is a small and very hot area in south eastern Spain at between 400 and 700 metres above sea level which produced the bulk wines of the 1970s and 80s. #discovery
I was blown away by the value of this wine. Great structure, good, quite intense dark, forest fruits flavours supported by a little oak ageing. I will be back for more!

Glad you enjoyed it - personally I thought it was OK but nothing to shout about.

Moved from wishlist to basket, cheers for the recommendation.
