Winemaker Notes

The different grape varieties were fermented together, part in stainless steel, part in cement, with one third of full clusters and aged for one year in used barrels and matured for a further three months in stainless steel before being bottle unfiltered. The nose is fruit-driven, there are no traces of oak, a combination of cherry fruit, herbal aromas and a pinch of spices, and a medium-bodied palate with focused, red cherry flavors, fine tannins and balanced acidity. This is supple and easy to drink, fresh and very pleasant.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
This is a blend from vineyards planted between 1942 and 2002—mostly mencía (65 percent) and bastardo (30 percent) with a little tinto fino. The result is complex, refreshing and delicious, with earthy flavors of fungi, red fruits and herbs. It gives a sense that there are many more layers to discover and that it will take some time in the bottle for this wine to undress. For the moment, the vibrant and refreshing red fruit flavors that winegrower José Luis Mateo obtains from high altitudes in Monterrei are seductive enough not to wait: You could decant this bottle now to enjoy with grilled sardines.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The red 2013 Alanda, cropped from a coolish vintage with some rains at the end of the harvest is a blend of grapes and origins within Monterrei, Mencía, Bastardo, Garnacha Tintorera, Mouraton, Gran Negro and Arauxa. The grapes were fermented together, part in stainless steel and part in concrete, with some full clusters. Part of the wine matured in used barriques for 14 months while part rested in the concrete vats. The two parts were blended and kept in cement for three months before being bottled. It's an Alanda with nerve and tension, with aromas of bitter cherries and aromatic herbs with just a touch of spices. The palate is vibrant and sharp, with very good acidity; there is a fine thread and polished tannins, but with nerve and grip. It was bottled unfiltered. All these wines are still showing very young, and will benefit from at least six months in bottle.

Quinta da Muradella, Spain
Quinta da Muradella Winery Image

Located in the town of Verin in the Monterrei DO, Quinta da Muradella is a garage winery where properietor Jose Luis Mateo and Raul Perez make small production wines from 34 unique parcels (all certified organic). The wines made today by the local wineries no longer speak the language of the past. Due to this lost identity, Jose Luis and Raul felt the mission to recover and recapture lost varieties and genetic marterials facing extinction. In a certain way, Quinta da Muradella is a liquid book of history.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, 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.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety 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.
