    Sometimes a wine can just let the reviews do the talking – and there’s plenty being said about this one!

    “This is one of the wine world’s most amazing values!” (Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar)

    “Once again, this is probably the top value I found in my annual tastings of new releases from Spain” (Josh Reynolds, International Wine Cellar)

    “The intense and brooding Olivares Altos de la Hoya Monastrell, had a group of Spanish wine loving friends in disbelief: How could a wine so densely flavorful be so cheap?” (Lettie Teague, The Wall Street Journal)

    From Bodegas Olivares in Jumilla in southeast Spain. This is an area of long hot summer days, long cold winter nights and long periods of drought. Most grapes wouldn’t last but the Monastrell grape thrives in these conditions!

    Aged six months in oak this is a 90% Monastrell blend with a 10% dash of ripe, juicy Garnacha. A deeply coloured, ripe red full of powerful red and dark fruit flavours and spice. Seriously smart for the money – find out what the fuss is all about!
