Bodegas Piqueras Black Label Organic Syrah Monastrell 2018

This Spanish red punches well above its price point with its silky body, spice character and juicy fruits. It's the perfect harmony between a chunky winter red and medium bodied crowd pleaser.

Bodegas Piqueras is owned by a family of the same name, who have been making wines for the last 100 years. The vineyards are planted at high altitudes in Almansa, Castilla La Mancha. The 2018 Black Label is a 50/50 blend of Syrah & Monastrell (also known as Mourvèdre) and is deeply coloured with a perfumed nose of blackcurrants, pepper, and thyme.
