Characteristics of La del Terreno Monastrell
La del Terreno Monastrell 2018 is a natural red wine made by La del Terreno in the D.O. Bullas (Murcia) with the native Monastrell variety.
La del Terreno Monastrell is the personal project of Julia Casado, a young winemaker who, having travelled and worked in different wineries around the world, settled in Bullas (Murcia), having been fascinated by the characteristics of the Monastrell variety or “La del Terreno”, as it is known locally. An independent, strong and courageous producer who started this project on her own, with minimal intervention and no agrochemicals. This work results in incredibly expressive natural, modern wines.
La del Terreno Monastrell comes from old vineyards in the Lavia and Burete mountains, Murcia. A total of 3.5 hectares of Monastrell vines planted on sandy loam soils, aged over 50 years old and lying 800 metres above sea level. Using respectful viticulture, cultivation is completely organic and the harvest is carried out manually in 15 kg boxes.
In the winery, the La del Terreno Monastrell grapes macerate for a short time and then ferment in cement tanks without being destemmed. Fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts. It is then aged for 8 months in used 500-litre foudres. It is finally bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphur.
La del Terreno Monastrell is a natural red wine that aims to show what wines were like before, without additives or additions that can mask the intrinsic characteristics of a great Monastrell grape.
La del Terreno Monastrell 2018 is a juicy red wine with very fruity and spicy aromas. On the palate it is light, fresh and very flavoursome. On the mid-palate it is very persistent with exquisite acidity.
Despite being an old cultivation area, Bullas is the youngest DO area in the Autonomous Community of Murcia. Although their wines have been linked for decades to emergency exportations to France during the phylloxera plague, and to reparations of alcohol content, colour and structure of famished wines from other areas, it has now broken this tradition thanks to the modernisation effort by some wine-makers and growers that have relied relentlessly on the Monastrell grape. The grapes are harvested once they are ripe, seeking less volume and alcohol content and more quality; this means that some have managed to gain national and international prestige and recognition.
