14.5%. Monestrell is also grown in France and known as Mourvedre. It's a thick skinned grape that produces big powerful reds as long as the wine-maker knows how to handle it. This wine is made by one of the leading wine makers in South-East Spain - Juan Gil. The wine is ideal with grilled meats and casseroles. The area where it grows is hot and windy so it makes it easier to farm organically - this also means that the grapes get more attention and usually a much better wine.
