Barahonda Monastrell

Barahonda make balanced and expressive wines full of colour, flavour and complexity which have their own personality.

Unoaked 100% Monastrell, with grapes sourced from 70% clay and 30% sandy soils. The winemaking process takes place in stainless steel tanks for a period of 15 days, with a maximum temperature of between 20/25 ºC. Once the maceration-fermentation process is finished, it is stored in tanks until it is clarified and stabilised for bottling.

The Barahonda logo points to their wines being rooted in the soil and made from the vines. Grapes are carefully nurtured, as an essential part of the personality and quality of the wine.

Tasting Notes:

Unoaked; a brilliant cherry colour with the full blackberry and cherry aromas typical of the Monastrell grape. Sweet and smooth on the palate there is concentrated dark fruit and spice flavors along with notes of licorice. The finish has great depth; solid, grippy and plenty of spiciness.

This wine’s spice and fruit will pair wonderfully with sweet or savory veal or pork sausage, Cuban ropa vieja and beef or pork empanadas. There is enough weight to have with chicken mole poblano (chilli and chocolate sauce).

Will keep for 7-8 years

About the Producer

Bodegas Barahonda

The Candela family have taken Barahonda from a small local business in the 1850s, through an established Bodega in 1925, to now.

The history starts around 1850, when Pedro Candela Soriano began to produce and sell small quantities of wine locally until, in 1925, Antonio Candela García founded a small winery. It was subsequently taken over by his son, Antonio Candela Poveda, who grew and evolved it over the years.

With the need to create higher quality wines Bodegas Barahonda was founded in 2006 and is currently run by Antonio and Alfredo, the fourth generation of the Candela family.

The winery building stands out with its characteristic silhouette of simple and symmetrical lines in contrast to the old farmhouses that surround it. Despite this, it is perfectly integrated into the landscape of the valley, built with traditional materials and surrounded by the vineyards that provide the precious raw material.

As symbolised by Barahonda’s iconic image, their wines are united to the land, made from the vine, giving the vineyard the care it deserves as an essential part of its personality and quality.
