Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The heat-loving Monastrell is known as Mourvèdre in France’s Rhone valley. Jumilla records show that Monastrell was used at least as early as the 15th century. Like the Rhone, Jumilla gets extremely hot during the summer days, but because of the 1,500 foot elevation, nights are very cool. This allows the grapes to become physiologically ripe, yet maintain their acidity.
