La Tremenda Monstrell
This best-seller from one of Southern Spain’s leading wineries, La Tremenda delivers an explosion of dark fruit flavours at a jaw dropping value. Robert Parker rated the 2018 La Tremenda 92, writing, “The incredible value 2018 La Tremenda is pure Monastrell from 26-year-old vines on sandy and silt soils covered with rolling stones. It is fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak barrels for six months. It's a more delicate expression of Monastrell, with good balance, quite transparent; it was easy, and the wines have very good freshness, with less concentration but terrific balance and definition, quite fruit-driven but with complexity and depth. It's approachable, really good for an entry level and amazing for the price. This is really impressive. An honest Monastrell.”
