The grapes of Shiraz were collected during the two first weeks of September and Monastrell grapes during last two weeks of this month. The fermentation process was carried on in stainless steel tanks with control of temperature where the juice was maintained in contact with the skins during all the process.

"At a low price, a Spanish red (appellation jumilla, south of Valencia) generous, rich and full-bodied, fruity and liquorice notes engaging well. A very good buy!"
"From Jumilla - one of the fastest rising regions in modern Spanish winemaking - Pasico Monastrell Shiraz (536664) $10.99 blends Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) and Shiraz (aka Syrah) grapes into a mouth-filling red that oozes black cherry and plum fruit that just keeps coming on before sliding into sage and savoury spices. This would be perfect with New York steak!"
"Dark berry and plum fruitiness marked by a light pepperiness and lively freshness"
