This large region has some of the oldest and most concentrated Monastrell in Spanien, producing full bodied reds that are just as good as most Bandols, and sell at half the price, (The Observer). This great value red is from a winery that lies on the Silk Road (Camino de Seda), which brought wealth and splendour to the region over 500 years ago.

Crafted by Scottish born winemaker Pamela Geddes, the wine is packed with intense black fruit flavours, complemented by notes of sweet vanilla and spice. Enjoy solo or with pork loin, venison and hearty stews.
