Familia Pacheco Monastrell 2018
Fresh, fragrant red fruited nose followed by a succulent palate redolent of roasted plums, the sweetness of which is nicely offset by oak and a line of crisp acidity. Mouth-coating and dense with a good persistent finish. Widely considered one of the best wineries in Jumilla, Viña Elena is headed up by Elena Pacheco and her three sisters, who are setting the bar incredibly high with the wines they are producing. Monastrell is the predominant variety in the Viña Elena portfolio and flourishes in the nutrient poor, limestone soils. The wines produced by Viña Elena are thoroughly Mediterranean in style, certified organic and offer outstanding value.
