Description

Big, dark and brooding. Red berry aromas on the nose, with a light touch of balsamic. A balanced, full-bodied, fresh wine enhanced by seasoned tannins and the reoccuring traces of ripe fruit.

Widely considered to be one of the best wineries in Jumilla, Viña Elena is very much a family affair with Elena Pacheco at the helm supported ably by her mother, sisters and children.

Viña Elena sits directly inland from the Costa Blanca and that venerable holiday destination, Benidorm. Safe to say, it is hot in this south east corner of Spain and Elena is fascinated by Monastrell and how she can create ever more elegant and delicate incarnations of it, despite the intensity of the sun.

Non-irrigated, bush vines, hand harvested, limestone soils, the age of the vines vary from 15 to 40 years old. This wine is made from picking over a combination of different plots located in different sub-zones. Altitude range is between 380 and 760 metres above sea level. All vines are certified organic. All the plots were planted in low density (around 1,400 to 1,600 vines per hectare).

Delicious with tapas, paella and grilled turbot.
