Terroir: Bodegas Olivares is located in the northern part of Jumilla, which offers superior growing conditions. The vineyards are at high elevations of over 800 meters (2,625 feet) where nights cool down quickly resulting in wines with astounding freshness and equilibrium. The sandy soil has allowed for the vines to be own-rooted (ungrafted). This particular wine comes from an 11-hectare vineyard, which includes vines planted between 1872 and present day.
Aging: The Monastrell ages in a combination of barriques and demi-muids. A few barrels are new, but most are second and third passage barrels from elite Burgundy producers.
