Tasting notes

A joyous nose of mulberry, dark cherry, damson and raspberry, all backed by a lovely pepperiness. The palate is lively and again filled with dark spicy berried fruits, not heavy in any way, fresh and deliciously quenching. L&S (Jul 2017)

Bodegas y Viñedos Monfil

This family run Bodega has been growing grapes in the Campo de Cariñena since 1945, but only bottling their own wines since 2004 when the three siblings Victor, Maria and Ana took the reins. With beautiful, very old vineyard holdings the fruit they grow is incredible on their gnarly old bush vines. Great quality wine being made here offering stunning value. The Cariñena DO was created in 1932, making it one of the oldest protected growing regions of Europe, at the same time as being the largest vineyard area in the northern region of Aragón.
