La Tremenda Monstrell

Red Wine

2018

La Tremenda, the best-seller from one of Southern Spain’s leading wineries is back and delivers an explosion of dark fruit flavours at a jaw-dropping value.

 

Toronto Star wine critic Carolyn Hammond wrote on December 12, 2021 "This Spanish red from the Alicante region on Spain’s Mediterranean coast is just screamingly good value.

Monastrell is a Spanish grape variety that produces big, bold reds. And this expression is deep, dark and delicious with wild aromas of muddled black forest fruit drizzled with blackberry liqueur. The scents are heady and sun-ripe but more savory than confected. Then it rolls in like thunder, deep and powerful. The experience is plush and mouth-filling without seeming too dense or heavy. Black earthy-but-berry-rich flavour fans out with peppercorn, walnut and shaved curls of bittersweet chocolate that smudges into a long finish. Score: 94"
