Winemaker Notes

On an intense and deep red, it showcases a complex bouquet, with ripe fruit notes (blackberries, red plums) and elegant spices. Silky and delicate palate, as well as fleshy and opulent, but with a very present fruitiness. Lengthy and balanced.

Also 100% Monastrell but a selection of old, head-trained vines, the 2016 Mira Salinas was brought up in a mix of new, once-, and twice-used barrels. Its deep ruby/plum color is followed by a Bandol-like bouquet of smoked black fruits, earth, meat, and spice. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, has beautiful fruit, good acidity, and plenty of tannins, and it's a classic, balanced Monastrell that more than over-delivers at the price. These are custom cuvées for Jorge Ordonez that are only brought into the US.

Fruity and straightforward with plum and cherry flavors. Medium body. Soft tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
They removed the Garnacha Tintorera, so the 2016 Mira Salinas is now pure Monastrell, with a little less ripeness and alcohol than the 2015 I tasted next to it. It matured in 225-liter French oak barrels, 20% of them new. I see a big jump from the 2015 here; this is a lot fresher and the oak feels a lot more integrated. It's approachable and juicy, with fine tannins and a more vibrant palate with livelier flavors and more finesse. It seems like a change in style toward more elegance and drinkability. Rating: 90+

Bodegas Sierra Salinas, Spain
Bodegas Sierra Salinas  Winery Image

In 2013, the Miñano and Gómez families, owners of MGWine Group, purchased Bodega Sierra Salinas

Founded in 2000 by the Castaño family of Yecla. Since 2013, the philosophy of the Miñano and Gómez families has been to restore focus on the vineyards, by converting all of them to organic and dry farming. The temptation in such an arid climate as Alicante is to irrigate, but dry farming in this zone forces the root structures to grow deep and produces bunches with a tremendous natural balance of phenolic ripeness and healthy pH. They have also minimized the impact of new oak barrique in their wines, and at this price point, are creating a completely unique style of Monastrell from Alicante. Jorge Ordóñez Selections began to represent Bodega Sierra Salinas in the United States in July of 2018.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
