2018 Familia Pacheco Organic Monastrell, Viña Elena, DO Jumilla

Tasting Notes

Ruby in colour. The aromas of red fresh fruit (Raspberry, red cherry, strawberry) and some floral notes (roses) are clean and plentiful. On the palate, it is vibrant, refreshing, medium-bodied, well-balanced and elegant finish. It is the epitome of a well made Monastrell. Fermented in stainless steel tank with no oak treatment, maceration of 7/8 days with a temperature controlled to 22ºC.


Vineyard Information

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. Trained using the traditional Spanish method ´en vaso´, the wines produced by Viña Elena are thoroughly Mediterranean in style, certified organic and offer outstanding value.

Non-irrigated, bush vines, hand harvested, limestone soils, the age of the vines vary from 15 to 40 years old. This wine is made from picking over a combination of different plots located in different sub-zones. Altitude range is between 380 and 760 metres above sea level. All vines are certified organic. All the plots were planted in low density (around 1,400 to 1,600 vines per hectare).
