Julia 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. Julia is 45-year-old monastrell from 550m that has spent 18 months in French oak. Structured and brooding black fruit, with gritty, hard-pressed tannins framing the blue plum core. This finishes with bitter black cherry and dark chocolate.Tasted: 10 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.00 private wine shops Producer: Bodegas Casa de MoyaDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
