Murcia, reinventing itself with Monastrell

Located in Spain’s southeasterly corner and bordered by Andalucia and Valencia, Murcia is one of Spain's smaller wine producing regions made up of three DOP appellations (Yecla, Jumilla and the largest Bullas). In recent history its well-crafted and robust Monastrell-based reds were known and reputed throughout the world.

It is purported that many of the region's vines were introduced by the Ancient Phoencians. Then in the second half of the 19th century the region came back into prominence, when the vineyards of France were devastated by phylloxera and French producers turned to other winemaking countries to help with the gap, Murcia was a natural choice due to its favourable conditions and thriving Monastrell grape. It provided the wines with high levels of tannin, flavour and maturing potential.
