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 20 hectares of ungrafted vines, planted between 1932 and 1975, grow in limestone soils. The zone has an extreme continental climate.

Harvest was carried out meticulously. Alcoholic fermentation of this red wine from Alicante 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 this Spanish red wine by Jorge Ordóñez 1 hour before you drink it.

Drink Tarima Hill 2016 from now to 2026.

Additional Information

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 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 2016 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.
