Dark ribbons of purple and black cherry color. Beautifully intense, youthful aromas of black cherries, bramble and black plums in nice balance with herbs and spices, thyme and liquorice. Soft aromas of toasted oak, chocolate and cappuccino round off the aromas making the wine more complex. The wine has a soft silky palate full of ripe berries, a remarkably refreshing acidity and a juicy fruit driven finis. Matches with glazed pork chops, roast beef, robust pasta dishes suchas lasagne, rich jamon Iberico and semi curred Manchego.
- La Nymphina means “the Nymph”. It’s made by two brothers who are experts in Spanish wines: David Tofterup (2 time winemaker of the year in Spain) and Jonas Tofterup MW.
- Monastrell is the 4th most grown red grape in Spain. The French call it Mouvedre and the new world calls it Mataro. Our Spanish Monastrell come from 40-50 year old dry farmed, low yielding vines. We make Nymphina to express the youthful, softer side of the grape.
- The deep fruit richness is characterized by black cherries and dominate sweet spices but there are also delicate aromas of toasted oak on the nose.
- The vineyards are on two south facing blocks 2700 feet above sea level. The drastic temperature swings between day and night results in beautiful clusters of very ripe berries.
