A Monastrell from 50 year-old-vines, Hecula is a deep, alluring purple in the glass, boasting aromas of raspberries and liquorice. Ripe soft fruit flavours are underpinned with a floral elegance.

This wine is from Las Gruesas and Pozuelo vineyards which are situated at an altitude 750 metres above sea level, and certified organic. This area has a very different microclimate from the rest of the region which is clearly continental. It has minimum temperatures of -10°C in winter and up to 42°C in summer. The area is prone to infrequent but heavy spells of rain. The average age of the vines is 50 years old and the density is 1,600 vines per hectare. Soils are a mix of sandstone and limestone.
