"I've always liked their 100% Monastrell bottling that's named after the year the property was created, and the 2015 1771 is from a classical Mediterranean vintage, to which the variety is perfectly adapted. It has a textbook Monastrell and Mediterranean nose of ripe berries, tree bark, esparto grass, hay, straw, thyme and rosemary. This wine is always an elegant expression of the rusticity of the grape, and the 2015 has a classical style. The grapes were picked under very good conditions, and the wine shows quite relaxed. The wine is polished and drinkable, but it has the stuffing and balance to develop nicely in bottle. It matured in 700-liter French oak barrels for 12 months. 5,325 bottles were filled in April 2017."
"At Casa Los Frailes we believe that wines shall express a soil, a climatology, a history and roots. We are aware of enjoying a privileged environment and therefore we are committed to search for the authenticity of such environment, as a living thing on its own, not belonging to any of us. Our roots, listening to our past and to mother nature allow us to elaborate sincere and pure wines." -Winery
