Description
Founded in 1930, Olivares sources all its wines from sites with sandy soils that contain a high percentage of chalk. These soils have helped the estate avoid the ravages of the phylloxera louse, allowing them to have some 110 hectares of ungrafted Monastrell vines of nearly 50 years of age. This will be a smoky wine, with dark fruit and cassis. A good choice for beef stew.
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Monastrell Altos de la Hoya is produced from the fruit of dry-farmed, ungrafted, old Monastrell vines and some 5% Garnacha. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks and matured for six to eight months in used barriques and larger oak vats. The nose is clean and textbook Mediterranean with aromas of esparto grass, tree bark, blackberries and thyme, with perfectly integrated oak. The palate feels compact and balanced, with fine tannins and good acidity. I think this shows very well for such a challenging vintage in Jumilla. Score - 89.
