Monastrell, more commonly known as Mourvèdre, has a rich history in Spain, dating all the way back to the 1st century. It's often used as a blending grape in other parts of the world, but Spain likes to showcase the variety's rich, rustic nature on its own. This honest and pure version delivers sun-ripened fruit flavors of strawberry, blackberry, fig and black plum on the palate, culminating in a long, lingering finish. Pair this delightful red with richer poultry and pork dishes for a winning combination.

Some winemakers prefer "wild fermentations," meaning they do not use a specific yeast strain to ferment their wines – they just let nature take its course.
