    Closure:
    Maria Jover, a 28 year old winemaker heads up the thoroughly modern operations at Parajes del Valle. The organic Monastrell grapes come from very old vines (20-40 years old), organic, maintained from the old system of "Terraje".

    The system entails a renting of the vineyards to the local farmers who take care of the quality of the vines and are given back a 7% of the production to the land owner. Most of the 80-90 year old vines in Jumilla are maintained that way, but changing views has seen many turn back to a focus on productive irrigated vineyard's rather than quality fruit.

    The goal of the cellar is to maintain the old vines of the "Terraje" system by paying the grapes a higher price, and therefore maintaining the higher quality those old vines yield.

    A noble cause and one that is paying dividends. We have encountered several wineries with similar systems or focus on lower yields and quality fruit and the resultant wines show a much more lifted and vibrant style of Monastrell that we really love. The same is absolutely true here. Still that mulberry and pencil lead but with a halo of vibrant red fruit and lifted aromatics. There is a snap of tannin and crunch of acidity that keeps everything on point. Good stuff! PWS
