Review for the 2016 MMMM ...
The grape for the Macho Man Monastrell was sourced from the valley of La Raja on the Mediterranean coast, sub-region Jumilla, Murcia wine region in south-eastern Spain. Manually harvested in early October from very old Monastrell vines, located on raised terraces, the Grape variety is well suited to harsh conditions and accounts for over 80% of the grape grown here. Jumilla is one of three sub-regions within Murcia and is sandwiched between the other two, Yecla in the north and Bullas in the south.
Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines ...
The award winning Red House Macho Man Monastrell appears intense garnet with purple highlights, notes of sweet balsamic and peppery spice, mingled with persistent red and black fruit on the nose. The palate is full with silky blackberry fruit and sweet plum jam, toasted spice, finishing particularly fetching with even more sweet fruit and austere of smoke and spice. An excellent red that will age well 5-7 years and please allow to breathe 1-2 hours. Best served with veal or even pizza.
