The Oddbins Take

This wine, if you had the inclination (we certainly did), makes an intriguing comparison to our Finca Allende Rioja. Most Rioja is at least 75% Tempranillo, with Grenache usually topping up most of the blend. Finca Allende is, unusually, 100% Tempranillo, while La Montesa is, also unusually, a blend of 75% Garnacha. Try them side by side to see the difference each grape can brings to the mix! It’s like a science experiment, but way more fun. But we’ll give you the results now if you can’t wait… La Montesa has rich, juicy blackcurrants fruit aromas, with toasty oak and tobacco hints. The palate is rich, weighty and concentrated yet remains elegant and balanced with a clean fresh finish and very fine tannins.
