Type: 100% Monastrell
Tasting Notes:
Gabriel Martinez Valero (a.k.a. Gabi), has always lived in Jumilla, where wine has been made since before Roman times. Gabiís family is thought to be one of the families that used to export their Monastrell wines to France in the mid XIX Century, when phylloxera was devastating the French vineyards. The southern French vignerons fell in love with these wines that they started calling it Mourvedre, after the Mediterranean town of Morvedro (Morverdre in the local Valenciano language) where most of the wine was loaded in boats to go to France.
The wines shows an array of blackberries, blueberry jam, plum skin, cedar, very spicy with hints of lavender, dried wild grasses, thyme and a long aftertaste.
