Wine Guide

Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell


Bodegas Bleda is one of, if not the most historical producer in Jumilla, dating back to 1902.  They were the first to bottle their own production, and the first to export wine out of their region, and abroad from Spain.  Their viticulture is organic, and everything is done by hand in the vineyards.  In the winery, things are kept fairly traditional with respect to winemaking techniques, despite being outfitted with modern equipment.  Older oak barrels are preferred for the most part, allowing the fruit and varietal character of the Monastrell to shine through. Throughout the decades, Bodegas Bleda has remained a family affair, being passed down through successive generations. 

Monastrell is the Spanish moniker for a grape that goes by many names around the world, such as Mourvèdre, Mataro, and the ominously-named Etrangle-Chien (dog strangler).
Dark purple/ruby in colour, saturated all the way to the rim.  Textbook Monastrell on the nose, showing and earthy mix of crushed rock, blueberry, cracked pepper, cinnamon, black raspberry, and bitter chocolate. Big, broad, and nourishing on the palate, with chalky tannins, spiced black fruit flavours, and a charming finish.
