Spain’s southeastern corner is a hotbed of red wine values, like this new-wave blend of three grape varieties.
What You Need To Know
Spain’s Monastrell grape, known as Mourvèdre in France, yields berry-rich wines with the luscious fruit of a Zinfandel and a juicy, spicy lift all its own. The country’s Mediterranean coast, where Bodegas Valle de Salinas is located, is a treasure trove of old-vine Monastrell that’s now being exploited by ambitious new wineries such as Bodegas Valle de Salinas. This bottling combines Monastrell with peppery Syrah and earthy Tempranillo to create a bold, well-balanced red. One secret to its surprising complexity is old vines: Bodegas Valle de Salinas draws on vineyards that range up to a century in age. Their tiny output of incredibly concentrated grapes helps give this wine its depth.
