Wine 3 Name and VintageGemina Selección Monastrell                                                
Price per bottle€9.95/8.90*   
Wine 3 DescriptionThis wine joins together all the features of its Mediterranean origins.  A poor limestone soil, continuous hours of sunshine, and non irrigated old Monastrell vines cared for by the expert hands of our wise winegrowers.  The result is a genuine wine with great personality, an intense cherry red colour, and deep aromas of ripe fruit combined with wood and spice sensations coming from its oak ageing.  In the mouth it is warm and smooth, with a great variety of sensations, pleasant and with a persistent finish.
Wine 4 Name and VintageGemina Cuvée Selección, 2021
Price per bottle€15.49/13.86*
Wine 4 DescriptionThe limestone terroir of Jumilla in the southeastern of Spain is blessed with copious amounts of Mediterranean sunshine.More than enough to create exceptional grapes that evolve naturally into an exquisite wine with memorable aroma and flavour.Gemina Cuvee Seleccion is only made from Monastrell selected grapes, only coming from European root vineyards, ungrafted older than 40 years.  An elegant wine, full bodied and smooth.  It makes fantastic partner for hard cheeses, beef stew, and roast meat.
Wine 5 Name & VintageLacrima Christi
Price per bottle€20.14/18.02*
Wine 5 DescriptionNatural Sweet Red. 100% Monastrell.  There is no addition of sugar or alcohol, as in other sweet wines; That’s why it is a natural sweet.Next, the wine is placed in oak barrels, where it will remain for 8 or 10 years until it is later bottled, labelled and put on sale on the market. The Lácrima Christi wine constitutes an oenological relic and is a tribute to the ancient farmers and winemakers of Jumilla. 
Closing CommentsFirst time using the Denia Yacht Club as a tasting venue.  Food was enjoyable, and wine was served as requested.  If using the venue again, would request that the cava reception be held on the terrace.
