Bodegas Monfil's vineyards cover an area of approximately 22 hectares, where the primary grape varieties are Garnacha and Tempranillo, grown in pristine conditions. The average age of the vines are around 35 years old. The family owned winery is located in the northeast of Spain, Capital of Aragon region and Zaragoza province, on the Ebro river.
Grape varieties: Garnacha & a touch of Shiraz.
Appearance: Intense dark ruby color.
Nose: Fresh and lively cherry and blackcurrant fruit abound.
Palate: Extended softness in the mouth, cherry, blueberries and a touch of pepper. Nice and smooth, supple tannins with an excellent finish belying the humble price.
Recommended dishes: excellent by itself or with rice dishes, duck, grilled vegetables, roasted lamb, cold meat, cured cheese and Asian dishes.
We are delighted that Matthew Jukes included the Monfil in his Daily Mail piece as '..the best value red of the year to date!
"Garnacha is the Spanish name for the French red grape Grenache. Famous for making full-bodied, but juicy, red wines this grape is a superstar but one who rarely gets noted on a label. I have written up the last four vintages of this epic value, spectacularly delicious, berry-drenched wine on this very page. You simply must taste it - this is the best value red of the year so far!'
Big statement wine – this is the finest value red in the country right now with its amazing, juicy fruit, twist of cinnamon spice and epic, long finish." (Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail, 15th Oct 2016)
