The small wine region of Yecla lies in the southeastern Spanish region of Murcia. This gold medal-winning Monastrell wine is a little gem, with bags of character. After four months ageing in oak, the nose shows hints of figs, chocolate and herby spice. Quite full bodied with attractive soft tannins.

About the estate
Bodegas La Purísima was founded in 1946 by several farmers who joined forces in order to improve the quality of Yecla wines. Their determination and desire to produce great wines finally led, in 1975, to their receiving the Denomination Origin title. This was a huge achievement for these farmers who, limited by the border of the municipality, registered the Yecla Denomination of Origin nº 27 in line with the prestigious French AOC. Nowadays Bodegas La Purísima is one of the most important wineries in the region, and remains loyal to the spirit of its founders: Quality and Authenticity. They have almost 100 Ha of ungrafted old Monastrell vines, authentic vines which have grown on their land since the beginning.
