The 2018 Las Quebradas is pure Monastrell from a dry-farmed and head-pruned vineyard with very poor soils covered in limestone boulders (caliche). It fermented with indigenous yeasts in square oak vats with manual punch-downs of the cap. It matured in Allier barrels for 16 months. It feels very young and still marked by the élevage. The palate is terribly stony and mineral with a chalky texture, serious and powerful with terrific balance. In general, these 2018s are a little more delicate and fresher than the 2017s, which were very Mediterranean. Wait a bit to pull the cork. Drink date: 2021-2028. Score - 94.
