Tasting notes on the wine:
“Zillamina is 100% monastrell and full of flavors such as blackberry, raspberry, and black currant while finishing with notes of spice. Enjoy this wine with grilled octopus and olive tapenade, a fresh tomato tart, or your favorite tin fish.” — Sarah Pierre
About the winemaker:
“When you open this bottle, use it as a portal to take you directly to Alicante, located on the southeastern coast of Spain, known for its packed, sandy beaches filled with people sunbathing, swimming, and sailing. Zillamina tastes like the Mediterranean; it’s no wonder this wine brings wine lovers so much pleasure. Produced by Bodegas Pinoso, a Spanish organic viticulture cooperative established in 1932 that is currently one of the main producers of organic and vegan-certified wines nationwide. The Pinoso vineyards are grown at high elevations and relatively close to the Mediterranean Sea. ” — Sarah Pierre
