The wine

Hécula is a combination of concentration, colour intensity, minerality, fruitiness and a wonderful texture. Made solely from Monastrell grapes, originating from vines aged 60-80 years old, it receives a short ageing of six months in French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels, with only half of them new. It is a seemingly simple wine, which surprises due to its complexity, freshness and good structure. Harmonious, pleasant, flavoursome, it reveals that subtle touch of oak which gives overall balance and makes its passage through the mouth even more pleasurable. As admired by Parker himself, it's "probably too good"; nobody would expect an exceptional wine at this price, but "this certainly is".
