Equilibrio 4 Monastrell

“Equilibrio 4 spends 4 months in oak and is made from 100% Monastrell, the grape is better known as Mourvedre when it’s grown in France mainly in the Rhone valley where it is blended to make wines such as Chateauneuf du Pape. The rustic full bodied grape is originally from Spain and the arid region of Jumilla suits the growing of this grape. The wine is very flavoursome with blackberry and red fruit followed by a juicy mouthfeel. There is also a hint of perfume and wet gravel the wine has good length and a lingering finish. If you’re normally a lover of Cabernet Sauvignon this is definitely a great alternative. Bodega Sierra Norte are a new company set up by a family with three generations of winemaking experience, they follow traditional values with modern technology producing outstanding wines from the region.”

Quick Tasting Notes: “A cherry-red colour with a garnet rim and ruby glints. A complex nose with a harmonious mingling of black fruit and sweet spices, together with vanilla notes. On swirling, red berry fruit aromas gradually come through with hints of forest floor and damp earth. “
