The 2020 Hacienda Monasterio shows what Sisseck calls a “neo-classical” style of Ribera, with more freshness and 14.5% alcohol, harvested early and with higher yields. And possibly because of the Cabernet in the blend (around 10%), which also includes some Merlot and Malbec, the wine has great freshness (pH is 3.5) and avoids some of the excesses from the past. So, higher yields, an earlier harvest and careful oaking resulted in a more elegant wine. To me, it goes back to the benchmark Hacienda Monasterio, which for me is the 1996. A triumph over the natural conditions of the year. 211,200 bottles and some larger formats produced.

Hacienda Monasterio is the day job of Peter Sisseck. They keep working intensely in viticulture and keep fermenting in smaller vats, going for more precision. 2020 was harvested earlier to avoid over-ripeness; sometimes in the past they got too low of yields, and in 2020 it was more balanced.
