Bodegas Piqueras Black Label Organic Syrah Monastrell 2018

"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. Drink now, with a charcuterie board filled with your favourite cured meats and hard cheeses." - 17/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

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. Take it to your next dinner party as it loves a wide range of food - especially a Spanish paella!

D.O. Almansa Vineyard: 750-850 metres altitude, 30-35-year-old dry-farmed Monastrell bush and trellised Syrah vines, organic farming methods, nutrient-poor and limestone-rich soil, scarce rainfall.

Aged 6 months in American & French Allier fine grain medium-toasted oak barrels (300 L).
