In a nutshell:
A full-bodied organic red from Jumilla in hot, south-eastern Spain.
Elena Pacheco, the winemaker at Viña Elena specialises in getting the best out of the area's dominant red grape, Monastrell. Organically cultivated, non-irrigated bush vines are the source of the fruit here. The wine is made without oak ageing and is meant to be enjoyed young and vibrant. It has bright aromas of fresh raspberries, red cherries and strawberries together with some floral notes. On the palate there's lots of dark, sweet, spiced fruits with notes of balsamic vinegar and spice. With plenty of weight it's vibrant, refreshing and well-balanced with an elegant finish.
When to drink:
A lot of wine for the money, this is the epitome of well made Monastrell.
