Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya 2012
Aged in a combination of barrique and demi-muid. A few are new but most are 2nd and 3rd passage barrels from elite Burgundy producers. Most of the region is planted to Mourvèdre, locally know as Monastrell. Jumilla's summers boast hot days and cool nights, resulting in fantastically ripe grapes with good acidity. Bodegas Olivares's vineyards are in the northernmost zone of La Hoya de Santa Ana. This is the coolest subzone of Jumilla, with sandy, lime-rich soils that produce intensely aromatic wines.
