Gloria de Moya Monastrell 2015

Valencia and Murcia, SpainBodega De Moya was the long-awaited dream of Belgian businessman Yves Laurijssens, who left his factories behind and followed his wine passion to the mountains tucked behind Valencia. The poor, sandy soiled vineyards range from 800-950m, and he works with vines (predominantly bobal) up to 95 years old. This is 23-year-old monastrell from 550m that has spent one year in French oak. Soft plush black plum, blackberry with stretched, tight tannins to a bitter chocolate finish. Youthful and ready for drinking now with your meatballs and polenta.Tasted: 10 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.00 private wine shops Producer: Bodegas Casa de MoyaDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
