Food Pairings for Senorio de Barahonda Barahonda Barrica
Barahonda Barrica is an estate-bottled wine made by Señorio de Barahonda, the oldest winery in the Yecla DO region. This wine combines the powerful Monastrell grape with the spicy, soft tannins of Syrah. The Candela family established the bodega in 1925. Winemaker Araceli Gonzalez is one of the key figures whose work has shown the potential of Monastrell in Yecla. Monastrell is better known as Mourvèdre in France's Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, where the terroir and climate are similar to Yecla. Both regions have a Mediterranean climate with warm days and nights. Located in the warmer southeast part of Spain, Yecla is one of the country's oldest wine regions, with a rich history that dates back to the 6th Century. In recent years, the astounding rediscovery of Yecla by American journalists and consumers has prompted international acclaim for wines based on Monastrell. Native to Spain, Monastrell was brought to France around the 5-6th Century.
