" Casa de la Ermita Dulce Monastrell from the Casa de la Ermita winery is a Spanish dessert red wine that has been crafted without additives, added alcohols, or added sugars. The Monastrell grapes from Jumilla, Spain, that were used in this wine were intentionally harvested slightly over ripe, but while still in good health. These grapes were then left out under the sun in order to create a higher concentration of natural sugars from the grapes. After this process is completed, the Monastrell grapes are brought to the winery where they are very delicately pressed and dehydrated. Casa de la Ermita then adds resistant yeasts to secure even higher levels of natural sugar production by the grapes before fermentation. In the fermentation process, when the temperature reaches 58 ºF (14.5 ªC) the temperature is then brought down to stop the fermentation. This Spanish dessert wine Casa de la Ermita Dulce Monastrell is then aged for three months in oak barrels before it is bottled.
APPEARANCE

A crimson red colored dessert wine with high layering and bluish edges. Bright with lingering density in a glass.
NOSE

This red dessert wine Casa de la Ermita Dulce Monastrell has medium high aromatic intensity with loads of red and black fruit aromas, very ripe wild blackberries, and slightly spicy notes that are all entwined by a background of bay leaf and red peppers.
PALATE

This wine has a very pleasant entrance onto the palate, with a silky passage that is full of flavor. There are tannins present but they are velvety and pleasant. The aftertaste of this wine is long and sweet without being excessive. There is a grand harmony between sweet ripe fruits and fruit jams. " ~ Winery notes

Skip the ice cream and try this for dessert!! - Using slightly over ripened Monastrell grapes and crafted without using any additives, added alcohols, or added sugars Casa de la Ermita Winery doesn't skip a beat with this one! The bottle opens with intense aromas of red fruit and herbs. Medium bodied but still bold and jammy with hints of licorice. Sweet yet balanced, elegant and structured. You sure are in for a treat with this one!
