Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodegas Volver, Tarima Hill is made from old Monastrell vines located at the foot of the Salinas mountains, in the northern area of the DO Alicante.

The vines were planted in limestone soils between 1932 and 1975. The zone has an extreme continental climate.

Harvest was carried out meticulously. The alcoholic fermentation of this Spanish red wine took place in stainless steel tanks, while malolactic fermentation took place in French oak barrels, where the wine was also aged for 14 months.

We suggest that you aerate Tarima Hill 2017 about 40 minutes before you drink it.

Appearance

The red wine Tarima Hill has a clean, bright, intense high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

The wine opens tight, but after a while this old-vines Monastrell from Alicante shows a panoply of toasted notes and spices that slowly evolve into notes of ripe fruit, exotic fruit and a sophisticated touch of Havana cigars. On the background, some remembrances of dry earth.

Palate

Bold and expressive, with a clear note of liquor-infused fruit mingled with hints of toast and spices. On the background, an intriguing mineral and earthy layer. This wine by Bodegas Volver - Jorge Ordóñez has an excellent acidity, very refreshing, some ripe, savoury tannins and a long, persistent finish with a surprising touch of bitter chocolate, smoke and, again, some notions of fruit.

Our personal opinion

A serious wine at a very affordable price, Tarima Hill 2017 is a superb Mediterranean Monastrell that makes a great pairing with, for instance, a lamb stew.

This wine kicks ass!! I drank it with an Aussie red three times the price and I must confess that the expensive kangaroo was wiped out. Review by Gunner (Posted on 07/02/2018)
