Dosterras Vermeil Monsant 2018
Talk about a wine of great structure. This big Spanish red is 50% Grenache, 20% Carignan, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Tempranillo with a purple colour, fresh aromas and rich flavours of red and black berries, combined with smoky notes. Fresh acidity provides structure and silky tannins to the complex structure in this wine, which has bold black olive and dried herb aromas.
The vineyards are in Mar?a on clay soil with an average age of 40 years. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in 17,000 tanks litres with mild daily pumping followed by ageing in 500 litre French oak barrels for 12 months.
