Barahonda Monastrell DO

At Mundus Vini, the Señorio de Barahonda Monastrell won DO GOLD, and we gave him a strong 90 BELViNi points. Above all, the 90 Vinous points will make you sit up and take notice, because the responsible taster Josh Raynolds is considered to be extremely strict and critical.

The wine inspires with attractive berry fruit and fine spice aromas. Vanilla and pepper enhance the exciting bouquet typical of the grape variety. On the palate, this red wine is elegant, rich and very juicy, fruity, light, structured, with ripe tannins. The finish is fresh and spicy.

Mundus Vini: Gold for 2015

At Barahonda everything revolves around the indigenous grape variety Monastrell. They dedicate all their love and ambition to their highly esteemed „Reina de la Casa“ („Queen of the House“) in order to transform first-class grapes into first-class wines. The Señorio de Barahonda Monastrell DO 2015 is the result of 100% Monastrell produced from its own 65-year-old vines, which thrive in the heat of southern Spain. Small yields promote quality.
