Product Description
Details

The wine La del Terreno Monastrell is produced by bodega La del Terreno, the personal project of Julia Casado, a young winemaker who in the space of just a few years has become one of the most respected natural wine producers in Spain.

This Spanish red wine is made from 95% Monastrell and a droplet of the white varieties Airén and Macabeo. They are sourced from small parcels with granitic soils located around 800 metres of altitude, in an area called La Cañada del Jinete, in Sierra de Lavia, south east Murcia, DO Bullas.

The non-destemmed grapes were foot-stomped, macerated with the skins and fermented with wild yeasts in concrete diposits and open wooden vats. After making the final blend, this red wine from Bullas went through malolactic fermentation and was aged in the diposits for a period for 8 months.

Finally, the red wine La del Terreno Monastrell 2020 was bottled unfiltered.

This is, so to speak, a undomesticated and primal version of what we know to be wine. It definitely deserves a try.

Decant this minimal intervention wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine La del Terreno Monastrell is deep ruby with some reddish reflections.

Nose

This blend of Monastrell with Airén and Macabeo is earthy, pleasantly rustic and really characteristic. Forest berries, violets and scrubland, with hints of tree bark and a mineral note.

Palate

Flavourful and bursting with energy, this wine of bodega La del Terreno has some firm tannins, a linear acidity and an refreshingly untamed character. Texturally rich, with understated complexity and a medium-long finish with remembrances of forest floor and flowers.

Our personal opinion

The wine La del Terreno Monastrell 2020 definitely pushes the boundaries.
