A “bottle of untamed joy” from 4 Monos
09 May 2022

Much has been made of the 2018 vintage in the Sierra de Gredos. Ask almost anybody and they will confidently state that 2018 is the finest vintage in the modern era for this burgeoning Spanish wine region. Regular weather throughout the season, with no extremes, led to a long, slow harvest under perfect conditions – ideal for ripening Garnacha with masses of perfume, freshness and intensity. Producing wines entirely in that style, 4 Monos is a relatively young project, one that was established first in 2010, but didn't become a full-time reality until 2016. We have sung their praises often and are delighted to see that they are increasingly recognised amongst the leading handful of producers in the region.

Samantha Cole-Johnson, part of the team at JancisRobinson.com highlighted 4 Monos’ Cien Lanzas 2018 as the website’s “Wine of the Week” on Friday and we reproduce her tasting note below. Produced from four plots in the village of Cenicentos on white and grey decomposed granite soils, elevation ranges from 830 to 960m; stats that echo in the wine’s clarity and tense, fine grained tannins. It was produced with 100% whole clusters and aged for 15 months in neutral French oak. Priced at just £19.88 inc. VAT per bottle, there is a lot of excitement to be found here.
