Too bracing and crisp to be called a crowd-pleaser (acid haters beware), this red will appeal to those with a taste for bone-dry, earthy Spanish bargains. Monastrell is the same as mourvèdre, a tannic grape that delivers astringent backbone. The wine is full-bodied, plummy and herbal and would enjoy the company of fatty meats, such as sausages or lamb.
