Bodegas Arloren

Spirit of the Monastrell 2020

DO Jumilla, Spain

100% Monastrell | 14% ABV


Bodegas Arloren focuses on making wines full of value and personality from the lesser known Jumilla region in the south of Spain. Spirit of the Monastrell is a gentle step-up in intensity from the Vegacañada bottling delivering a slightly more velvety expression of the variety. It finishes bright with fresh acidity and an herbal lift. It's a wine that punches above its weight.

Guide to icons

This classic example of fruit forward Monastrell is deep cherry red in colour with bright violet tones. Aromas of ripe red fruits, black cherry and damson plums. The palate has an appealing freshness with subtle notes of bittersweet cocoa and herbs on the finish.

Goes well with red meats and hearty vegetarian dishes.
