Secretly, this Monastrell is climbing from Cambil Bay winery to the top. A truly phenomenal glass where all aspects seem to match. A very intense scent already betrays a lot; this is going to be pure pleasure. Your taste buds will recognize numerous distinct aromas: deep black currants, freshly picked blackberries and dried Mediterranean herbs. Yet this Cambil Bay Monastrell also has something exciting; almost something challenging. Good tannins alternate with leather. The temperament hangs subtly in the glass. After all, it is still a Spanish wine.
The Monastrell grape is gradually developing into a major grape on the Iberian Peninsula. With this success, the eternal reign of the Tempranillo and the Garnacha is finally over, because the Monastrell manages to dominate more and more vineyards. The Monastrell is the Spanish equivalent of the French Mourvedre, a grape that is mainly active in the southern half of France. For several decades, the Monastrell has also started to make a clear advance on Spanish vineyards. Especially in the Jumilla region, a wine enclave near Murcia, the Monastrell has great wines to its name. Although Jumilla has only recently received an official classification from the government, the winery behind Cambil Bay Monastrell has been active in these parts for over 150 years.
The driving force behind Cambil Bay Monastrell is the exciting winery Bodegas Bellavista, a high flyer when it comes to Jumilla wines. She has been making wine from the epicenter of Jumilla since 1870. This makes it one of the oldest wineries in this Spanish wine region. Because the vineyards in Jumilla are located at an altitude of 950 meters, all aspects for successful wines are present; this is precisely why the Monastrell thrives. During the day it receives sufficient sunshine while the rich trusses enjoy the fresh wind from the Mediterranean in the nights.
