Tinto Monastrell bottle

The name comes from a beloved Spanish nursery rhyme, telling the tale of how Bartolo makes the ladies swoon by playing a flute with a single hole. The point is that this is no one-noted wine, but rather a playful melody with many dimensions. La Flauta’s grape is Monastrell, also known as Mourvèdre in France and Mataro in Australia. Monastrell is an ultra-late ripener, and needs a long, wiltingly-hot climate like Jumilla in southeastern Spain. This extreme, mountainous region is virtually rainless, the soils are dry and impoverished, and there’s a 25°C daily temperature oscillation. In short, it’s a blast furnace by day, and a chiller by night… and Monastrell loves it! This mid-weight, spicy, fruity red is made by Bodegas Juan Gil, a sensational producer who set up shop in Jumilla in 1916, and planted a sea of Monastrell. La Flauta’s ripe blackberry flavours, smoked meat notes, and soft tannins will play nicely with a juicy cheeseburger or grilled chorizo.
