Monestir_Merlot_CatalunyaMONESTIR RED 2015
“Denominación de Origen” (Appellation) CATALUNYA

A deep, dark purple color, with a very fruity nose; fresh and with hints of red berry, cherry, and plum, but also more Mediterranean aromas such as ripe tomato or thyme. Hints of coffee bean, chocolate and tobacco are noted on the mouth.  It is intense and elegant on the palate, with a nice acidity and mature tannins.
We recommend decanting Monestir at least 1 hour before serving, ideally at a temperature of around 18 degrees Celsius, as its complexity is better appreciated after decanting. Monestir 2015 will continue to age well, staying at full potential for 5 or 7 years. It pairs perfectly with wild game, red meat, duck magret, and different meat sauces, but also with cheese and grilled entrées.

MONESTIR ROSÉE 2016

Monestir_RoseJust like its older sibling, Monestir Rosée is 100% Merlot. Its pinkish tint with orange reflections resembles the sun setting on the Monastery of Santes Creus, as seen from our vineyard. The fresh, fruity nose uncovers aromas of strawberry and violets. On the mouth it features the sweetness of red berries together with a nice acidity, and its persistence makes one crave for more. Monestir Rosée is the ideal summer companion. We recommend chilling it to 12 degrees Celsius.

MONESTIR Red 2014 vintage

Appellation CATALUNYA

A deep, dark purple color, with a very fruity nose, fresh and with hints of plum, vanilla and licorice. It is full and smooth on the mid-palate, with a silky texture and aromas of ripe fruit, along with a structured balance of acidity and freshness, and long finish reminiscent of candied fruit.

To better appreciate its complexity, we recommend decanting Monestir at least 1 hour before serving, ideally at a temperature of around 18 degrees Celsius.

MONESTIR 2014 should continue to age very well, reaching its optimum balance at 5 to 7 years. It pairs perfectly with wild game, grilled meat, duck magret, and different meat sauces, but also with cheese and spicy dishes.

We also offer it in a magnum size (1500 ml). For orders or to request more information, please contact us at contact@lavinyadelquintet.com
