2012 Shania Monastrell Vino de la tierra de Murcia (3L bag in box) (cannot ship)

SKU #1150788

Produced by Gil family estates, this is a delicious red wine in this newly (finally!) popular large format. At less than $7 per liter, dare I say that red wine does not get much more delicious and gulpable than this? Pioneers in the production of wines from Monastrell grapes grown in the Southeastern portion of Spain, the Gil family know this grape and Jumilla's calcareous vineyard sites as well as anyone. And since they have grown steadily over the years, their expertise and scale combine to make this truly one of the best dollar-for-dollar reds we've got--not merely in the Spanish section but in the entire store! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Mourvedre

- Also called Monastrell and Mataro, Mourvèdre is most famous for the ruby-hued wines of Provence's Bandol region, known for their spicy, gamey, blackberry character, though the grape is grown throughout Provence and the Southern Rhône. Thought to have originated in Spain, it is second only to Grenache in vine acres, with the best examples found in Rioja, Alicante and Penedès.
Country:

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
