Primitivo Quiles, D.O. Alicante

Known to us as either Mourvedre or Mataro, Monastrell is native to the south-east of Spain, in regions like Alicante, Jumilla and Yecla. Old plantings on poor-soiled slopes feature the meat, tar, berry, floral and muscular tannins we know from Mourvedre both here and in France. It is rather a more successful straight varietal on home turf, however – often showing plentiful red/black berry juiciness which the variety rarelyachieves elsewhere.

Primitivo Quiles as a bodega and as a family (Quiles) have been involved with wine in region since 1780. The bodega, based in Monóvar is the oldest bodega in Alicante, and quite possibly in all of Valencia.
