Monterrei Tinto, ‘Muradella’, Quinta da Muradella

Jose Luis is fastly becoming one of the most respected growers in Spain. On a recent article about Quinta da Muradella published by Jancis Robinson she wrote: “Although it is fascinating to taste wines from these relatively obscure varieties, what shines here is ‘the soul of Monterrei’ and the deft, light-handed winemaking of a skilful and intuitive winemaker.”

Organically grown (certified) vines planted from 1930-1950. Tended in quartz and clay soil from 600-790 m (1,960-2,592 ft) elevation.

1/3 whole cluster, 1/3 whole berry with no stems, and 1/3 crush berries maceration and fermentation in foudre of 1,000 lit. 14 months in 3 year old French oak and 11 months in the bottle before release.
