92% Monastrell, 8% Garnacha
Made exclusively from old, ungrafted vines in the cool sub-climate of Jumilla. The high elevation vineyards (2,625 feet) where the nights cool down quickly give the wine freshness and balance.
“The red 2018 Altos de la Hoya was produced with Monastrell grapes from old ungrafted vines. It has a creamy and balsamic touch with sweet spices intermixed with ripe berry fruit and notes of pencil lead and licorice, with the fruit being black rather than red. The palate is juicy and round, with very fine tannins and some creamy oak in the finish. Pleasant and easy to drink and understand.” – Wine Advocate
