the spanish aquisition

Telmo Rodriguez, D.O. Alicante

Alicante is an old Mediterranean vineyard area, composed of long, flat structured terraces with a marine influence, and is possibly the point of origin of Monastrell, one of the most important Spanish varieties. Historically, Alicante was a prime Mediterranean harbour and as such had an important influence on the wine industry.

Telmo Rodriguez's aim of setting up in Alicante was to create a wine based exclusively on Monastrell: "We must not forget that a wine that is commercial, in the best sense, can also reflect what is best about the region".

Attention to viticultural care is first class and in the winery the entire philosophy is to let the fruit speak. Tarry, meaty fruit with lovely berry profile, lifted florals and slurpy tannins the Almuvedre is a classical Monastrell, with the inimitable touch of Telmo Rodriguez.
