Vino Enesencia Monastell Bodegas la Purísima



Our “dulce” is the result of the natural drying of Monastrell grapes. It`s a natural over-ripening that occurs without the intervention of any rot. The result is a concentration of the sugars and the acids without a change to their natural balance. A unique phenomenon that can only be seen on the oldest vines with low yields and a specific exposure – a unique gift from the Yecla climate.

Tasting Notes:

A very intense and dark cherry colour. On the nose it is powerful and extravagant with aromas of dried fruits, quince paste, dried apricot and toasted notes. With aeration, the wine reveals notes of menthol, bergamot, eucalyptus and delicious black chocolate chips. The best adjective to describe the wine on the palate is “unctuous” . A sweetish and lively wine whose life and freshness is due to its surprising acidity; this makes the wine friendly and prevents it being sickly sweet. the finish is enhanced by flavours of liquorice and leaves a long-lasting aftertaste of white chocolate. A true tribute to the most sophisticated of deserts.
