Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Honoro Vera Monastrell was produced with grapes from 20-year-old dry-farmed vines on limestone-rich soils fermented in open-top stainless steel vats. It's a primary and juicy varietal Monastrell with textbook aromas of Mediterranean herbs, with a soft, balanced palate, clean flavors and a dry finish. A bargain. 192,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020.
This wine is made from grapes from organic vineyards in accordance with the rules of the European Union & the United States. The vines are planted on limestone soils without irrigation & with very poor yields, rainfall does not exceed 300 mm annual & it helps to obtain top quality grapes without adding any pesticides. Tasting Notes: It exhibits great aromatic complexity, richness, & length. This mouth-filling Monastrell over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 4 years. Food Pairings: Rices, pasta, white or blue fish, goat cheese, cured meat, vegetables/legumes dishes, mushroom, veal, grilled meat with creamy sauce.
