Name: Dulce Monastrell (Sweet Mourvèdre)
Varietal: 100% Monastrell (Mourvèdre / Mataró)
Description: This sweet red wine is produced from
50-year old Mourvedre, vinified, then
fortified with alcohol. Its tank aging results
in abundant freshness. It is a powerful, fullbodied
effort offering notes of road tar, blue
and black fruits, and flowers. It should
evolve nicely for 4-5 years.
Food Pairing: An excellent accompaniment to rich,
chocolaty desserts, as well as with cheese at the end of a meal.
