Bodegas Sierra Salinas Mira Salinas Monastrell 2016

91pts – VINOUS

“Inky ruby. Ripe dark berry and floral scents show very good clarity and are complemented by suggestions of vanilla, exotic spice and woodsmoke notes. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet, mineral-laced cherry and black raspberry flavors that tighten up slowly with air. Shows impressive depth as well as liveliness and finishes long and seamless, with lingering floral and smoke notes.” 91 points, Josh Raynolds, VINOUS

Sierra Salinas

The winery is located in Sierra Salinas, hence its name, a privileged enclave bathed by landscapes of incomparable beauty. The winery is surrounded by a total of 92 hectares where almond trees, olive trees and vineyards coexist in harmony on the slopes that are located 650-680 meters above sea level. Today 52 hectares of vineyards are destined to the cultivation of the vine, of which 42 they are of grape monastrell in glass with ages of more than 30 years and 10 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Petit Verdot, planted in system of trellis and glass.

In the Spanish province of Alicante, Monastrell is the dominant red grape. It is more widely known in France as Mourvedre. This wine is all estate grown at high altitudes in a Mediterranean climate. Twelve months aging in French oak of various ages.

Tasting Notes

On an intense and deep red, it showcases a complex bouquet, with ripe fruit notes (blackberries, red plums) and elegant spices. Silky and delicate palate, as well as fleshy and opulent, but with a very present fruitiness. Lengthy and balanced.
