Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby. Deep, smoke-tinged aromas of ripe blueberry, boysenberry and dark chocolate. Thick and rich, showing intensely sweet dark berry character but also good energy thanks to tangy acidity and spiciness. Finishes on a sweet blueberry note, with supple tannins, a hint of smokiness and excellent length.

Wine Information

Bellum el Remate is one of the finest examples of late harvest old vine Monastrell in Spain. It is produced from old vines planted in 1941. It is produced in the high elevation limestone subzone of Yecla. This area, known as Campoarriba by the locals, is where the best and oldest Monastrell vines come from. This exotic, not overly-sweet Monastrell tastes like a high-end Port yet it only possesses 15.5% alcohol. Bellum el Remate's subtle sweetness makes it more complex than other “sticky” wines! Bellum means, battle or war in Latin and refers to the concept that anything worth achieving in life requires a battle. Since its beginning in 2002, Bellum's objective is to produce elegant, age-worthy Monastrell wines. Bellum El Remate has always been highly awarded by many wine critics worldwide. Out of 5,000 wines, the 2006 vintages were awarded by Mundus Vini, "The Best Wine in Spain" among all categories. Bellum El Remate received the one and only Spanish Grosses Gold Medal.
