D.O. Manchuela (Castilla La Mancha)
Depaula Monastrell is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce in the V.T Castilla. The winery is situated in the municipality of Iniesta in the southeast of Cuenca, in the far east of the Castilla La Mancha.
This young winemaker wanted to produce wines in the area where he was born, but began working on numerous harvests in various zones and France to understand wine production before he laid the foundations for his own work. The work is carried out with the clear aim of making the use of native varieties and following the practises of organic viticulture.
Depaula Monastrell is made using the Monastrell grape variety from the neighbouring Jumilla . The vineyard used is situated 800 metres above sea level on ungrafted vines in the search for freshness of the region.
Depaula Monastrell ferments in (4500litre) wooden vats using its own yeasts and with few stems from one of the vineyards.
