100% Monastrell Deep ruby and heavy tannins. Monastrell is typically quite tannic and this one is as well, so brace yourself! It's a lovely, BIG, and uncomplicated red wine that is perfect for rustic food and lots of meat. Perfect for a fall barbecue or a pig roast! 1/3 goes through carbonic maceration and no sulphur is added.

We met Vinessens at Real Wine in London and immediately fell in love with the range of white and amber wines they were producing, majority coming from Monastrell. With a range from light whites to flor covered ambers, some have skin contact for over 2 years. 

Their vines are mainly over 100 years old on a mix of soils, with the majority on sand. You can feel the ocean on a lot of their wines with salinity, a lot of minerality and some with the local herbs like rosemary and thyme. The land is around 23 hectares on a hillside with 550 to 700 meters of elevation.
