“The certified-organic 2020 Honoro Vera Organic was produced with Monastrell that fermented in open-top stainless steel vats with selected indigenous yeasts and was bottled unoaked. It’s quite similar to the regular Monastrell with 14.5% alcohol and a fruit-driven and juicy personality. It has notes of ripe black fruit and aromatic herbs, juicy, hedonistic and tasty, and it’s a very good value and apt for the table. Balanced and harmonious, perhaps a little more concentrated than the regular Honoro Vera Monastrell. A bargain. 216,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2021.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Tasting Note: This wine is made from grapes from organic vineyards in accordance with the rules of the European Union and the United States. The vines are planted on limestone soils without irrigation and with very poor yields, rainfall does not exceed 300 mm annual and it helps to obtain top quality grapes without adding any pesticides. It exhibits great aromatic complexity, richness, and length. This mouth-filling Monastrell over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 4 years.
