Comments: “The outstanding 2012 Tarima Hill is 100% old-vine Mourvèdre from a vineyard planted between 1935-1970, whose vines are largely ungrafted. It was aged 20 months in French oak. This is a beautifully balanced wine revealing lots of blueberry liqueur, dark raspberries, cherries, a chalky minerality, full body, a big, substantial mouthfeel, and a meaty texture” 91 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Made from vines that were reportedly planted between 1935 and 1970; malo and aging in French oak for 20 months. Opaque ruby. Heady, seductively perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, cherrycola, Indian spices and candied violet, with a smoky mineral nuance adding vivacity. Sweet, penetrating and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and mocha flavors underscored by juicy acidity. At once rich and energetic, finishing with strong thrust, supple tannins and a whiplash of floral pastilles. ” 92 Points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar


Vineyard Description: Small parcels of vineyards between 40 and 75 years old with very low yields, all scattered through the Sierra de la Sima in the heart of Alicante. Grown in the system “cup" in (almost organic) natural conditions without irrigation. The combination of these features of the terrain and the altitude difference has this small area set a predominantly continental microclimate with Mediterranean influences with high temperature variations between day and night. All these conditions result in acidity and sugar content balanced.

Food Pairing: Recommended with red meats, game, roasts, poultry, rice, cured cheese, blue cheese and mushrooms.
