SAQ Price: $ 21.65
Ole, Ole, here we are, in front of a wine impossible to forget. Already with his name and his label I found it attractive, but the best, I assure you, is tasting it. It is absolutely delicious. The Monastrell (also known as Mourvedre) is the grape variety that in my opinion will become soon the vedette of the great Spanish wines. And Jumilla is one of the Iberian wine regions of which more is being said at the international level.This wine is a reference of the new Spanish wine’s trends ... take it into consideration!Macho Man is a powerful wine. With intense aromas of marmalade and red fruits, some cinnamon, pepper and fresh wood, it is a wine of mineral and Mediterranean character with a great expression of its terroir. In the mouth, it is generous, unctuous, with a balsamic body and and we still feel the flavory notes of fruit in jam and some other woody notes given by its 4 months in barrel. This Monastrell with such a suggestive name is a masculine, complex, elegant and balanced wine that seduced my palate with its irreverent structure, its aromas and flavors and its persistent and velvety finish. Its soft and fleshy tannins make it a versatile wine to enjoy without any complex and with almost any food. (MLF)
