Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The one Monastrell produced here is the 2022 Depaula, which he was able to bottle at 12.3% alcohol, a rarity for the grape, while keeping richness and mouthfeel. It has a fresh Mediterranean nose of aromatic herbs and fine, elegant fruit, with a sensation of more ripeness than what the alcohol level points at. In fact, the problem here is that Monastrell doesn't ripen if you don't work well in the vineyard, pruning short to control yields, and they have been improving the viticulture since they bought the vineyard. This is fresher and more floral Monastrell, with a balsamic twist and a juicy palate with deep flavors, with backbone and support. It fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts in 4,500-liter oak vats, where it matured for seven months. This is now certified organic. 17,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2023.

Features

Description

Depaula Monastrell wine is a unique expression of the Monastrell grape, grown in the Manchuela region of Spain. This wine is a product of the winery of Juan Antonio Ponce, known for his focus on biodynamic viticulture methods and his ability to capture the essence of the terroir in his wines.

Winemaking

The Monastrell grapes, sourced from vineyards over 30 years old at altitudes of 800 to 950 metres, are carefully selected and harvested by hand. Biodynamic viticulture is practised without soil enrichment or irrigation, maintaining the integrity of the soil. After harvest, the grapes are trodden by foot and fermented with indigenous yeasts in 600 litre French oak barrels, where the wine matures for 6 months. This process brings out the purity and freshness of the fruit, while adding subtle structure and complexity to the wine.

Taste

Depaula Monastrell is characterised by its distinctive aromatic and taste profile. On the nose, it offers aromas of ripe red fruits, sweet spices, aromatic herbs and balsamic touches. On the palate, it is spicy, with a good structure and a remarkable acidity that gives it freshness. This wine combines power and elegance in an exceptional way, showing a balance between richness of flavours and a silky texture.
This wine is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, reflecting the winery's commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. Limited production and care at every stage of its production make Depaula Monastrell an excellent choice for those looking for a wine with character and an authentic expression of the Monastrell grape.
