Los Yesares Monastrell 2021, Bodega Cerrón
This has an awesome, complex aroma that blends fruity, leafy, spicy and savoury nuances – just wonderful. In the mouth it’s very pure and very fresh, with satisfying weight and breadth of texture, which don’t sacrifice an ounce of the vibrancy which characterises Bodega Cerrón wines. It has astonishing force of personality and persistence on the palate of both flavour and texture, finishing with complex hints of gaminess, liquorice and dill seed. SO exciting! Los Yesares are 4 different old, ungrafted vineyards in Las Pedreras-Reventones, a high-altitude location where the district’s most historic vineyards were located. Steep slopes, deep calcareous sands and gravels, diverse orientations and Mediterranean forest create a more tense Monastrell profile with red forest and hedgerow fruit character, and wines capable of ageing.
