2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) Top Pick!
2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic)

Too soon? Not for rosé from the Southern Hemisphere, and not for this perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L. This is one of our best-selling and most-raved-about rosés every year. Hand-picked from biodynamically farmed, old Mourvèdre vines in a cool coastal sub-region of Stellenbosch, it's a fresh, elegant wine that does a fantastic impression of Bandol (which is also predominantly made from Mourvèdre), but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods. The wines are pure, expre... Read More »

2012 Bodegas Castaño "Hécula" Monastrell Yecla

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The basic offering from proprietor Ramon Castano Santa, who owns a whopping 1,000 acres in Yecla, is the 2012 Hecula, which is sourced from a non-irrigated, single vineyard planted with 100% Monastrell. Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a relatively high elevation of over 1,600 feet. Its opaque purple color is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, camphor, licorice, white flowers and a chalky limestone/dusty character. Full-bodied, rich and well-balanced, it is an in ...Read More »

2014 Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla

An excellent value from Spain. Monastrell grapes for this wine came from 45-year-old parcels on their estate vineyards. Shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock combine with an arid climate to produce the low yields required for wine of this complexity. After harvesting, the deep purple grapes are whole-cluster macerated for 25 days and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine possesses a very dark cherry color with purple tones. In the nose it has powerful aromas of red berries and smoky tones. The palate displays excellent fruit a... Read More »

2013 Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol

Agnes and Henri Gaussen cultivate the vineyard of Château de la Noblesse, which has been in their family for generations. Bandol is ground zero for wines made of Mourvèdre, and the 2010 exhibits all the dark and brooding personality you could ask of the grape. With notes of blackberry and dark chocolate, plus a firm tannic core, this is begging to be eaten with a hearty lamb stew.

2012 Château Pradeaux Bandol

Among the producers of Bandol, Pradeaux is frequently regarded as primus inter pares, first among equals. Refreshing sea breezes help to extend a growing season that favors the Mourvedre grape. And it is the Mourvedre that is the foundation of Bandol. At Pradeaux, the Mourvedre is used almost exclusively to produce its red wines. Further, the tradition of Pradeaux requires that the Mourvedre be not destemmed; thus, the wines reflect the totality of this noble cepage. Finally, the distinction of Pradeaux is reinforced by the devotion and patience of the P... Read More »

2013 Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill" Monastrell Alicante

91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of fresh black and blue fruits, licorice, vanilla and peppery spices. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors that flesh out on the back half. Sappy and concentrated, yet quite lively, finishing with smooth, shaping tannins and a strong punch. This sexy wine went through malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels for 20 months. (JR)" (1/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best is the 2013 Tarima Hill, which is 100% Monastrell from vines planted between 1935-1970 in ...Read More »

2015 Los Frailes Monastrell Valencia

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is also a red unoaked 2015 Monastrell kept in cement until bottling where it underwent malolactic after fermenting in stainless steel. It's a nice ruby color, not too dark, with a nose still redolent from the reductive media where it was fermented and possibly the recent bottling. With time it developed some meaty notes not that far from what you often find in northern Rhône reds. The palate is medium-bodied with some tannins to stand up to food. (LG)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: Produced from organically cultivated Monastrell in the D.O. of Valencia, this stainless st... Read More »

2014 Bodegas Olivares "Altos de la Hoya" Jumilla

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Monastrell Altos de la Hoya is produced from the fruit of dry-farmed, ungrafted, old Monastrell vines and some 5% Garnacha. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks and matured for six to eight months in used barriques and larger oak vats. The nose is clean and textbook Mediterranean with aromas of esparto grass, tree bark, blackberries and thyme, with perfectly integrated oak. The palate feels compact and balanced, with fine tannins and good acidity. I think this shows very well for such a challenging vintage in ...Read More »

2013 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The vineyard was planted in 1853, so these are some seriously old vines, yielding seriously concentrated fruit. The briary, blackberry fruit is lavished with toasty, vanilla-scented French oak, which melds nicely into a full-bodied, slightly creamy-textured wine that avoids any sensation of warmth or heaviness. Drink now - 2030. (JC)" (6/2017) K&L Notes: In 1853 Friedrich Koch planted this Mourvèdre vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley in the area now known as Rowland Flat. Nurtured in deep sand over a bed of limestone the vines flourished. By the 1880s the lo... Read More »

2004 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla
Bid on this bottle of 2004 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla (97RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The consulting winemaker at Bodegas El Nido is Chris Ringland of Barossa Valley fame. The 2004 Clio is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 70% Monastrell (from 63-year-old vines) which received malolactic fermentation in new oak followed by 26 months of aging in new French and American barriques. A glass-coating opaque purple, it exhibits a sensational nose of earth, mushroom, leather, blueberry, and blackberry jam. On the palate the wine is supple-textured, complex, with vibrant flavors of spicy blue and black fruits and a big-time WOW factor. This is a totally hedonistic effort with exceptional length and balance. It is remarkably light on its feet for such a powerful wine. (JM)" (02/2007)

2013 Bodegas Casa Castillo "Pie Franco" Jumilla

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no 2012 Pie Franco so I tasted the 2013 Pie Franco, the leading old-vine, ungrafted Monastrell wine from Casa Castillo. This is an indigenous wine showing the character of the place, grape and vintage quite transparently. 50% full clusters were foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged in used 500-liter barrels. I had the chance to taste the wine a mere week before bottling and it was showing truly superb. It reminded me of a hypothetical blend of 2010 and 2006, perhaps more elegant at this stage, with subtle earth and tree bark aromas ...Read More »

2009 Domaine Tempier "Cabassaou" Bandol New!
2009 Domaine Tempier "Cabassaou" Bandol

94 points Wine Spectator: "Very plush and powerful, with concentrated blackberry and dark plum flavors that show anise and chocolate notes. Iron and sanguine notes add to the complexity. The refined finish lingers with mouthwatering spice and mineral accents. Best from 2014 through 2022. (KM)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: Domaine Tempier is easily the best-known winery in Bandol, and this wine, from the fabulous 2009 vintage, is a good indication as to why. The Cabassaou comes from the lower part of the famed La Tourtine vineyard. The site's microclimate, created by the Le Castellet headland, makes fo... Read More »

2012 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "We finished the tasting with the inky-purple 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape. A cellar selection by Manfred Krankl (of Sine Qua Non) of mostly Mourvedre, yet with a splash of Grenache and even some white varieties, it was aged in two new 300-liter French oak barrels before being bottled (in magnum only) unfined and unfiltered. It’s a massive, masculine and structured Chateauneuf du Pape that needs to be tasted to be believed. Cassis, creamy licorice, jammy blackberry and crushed flowers are only a few of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with full-bodied ...Read More »
