Tasting Notes

This organic, 100% Monastrell wine is intense and shiny ruby red as great Monastrell should be. Bright Morello cherry perfumes complement notes of stewed fruit and sweet spice on a full flavoured but not over-whelming palate.

Producer details

The Castaño family owns over 410 hectares of vineyards in the Yecla DO in south-eastern Spain. 80% of these vineyards are planted with the native Monastrell variety. For several generations, Bodegas Castaño has been a pioneer in this region and has come to symbolise the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude, resulting in wines of great character and finesse.

In the vineyard

The grapes are grown on organic plots at 750 metres above sea level, a perfect area for organic production. Dry, sunny weather and specific soil conditions here give little chance for mould or pests to thrive, allowing a pesticide-free and agrochemical-free crop every year. The average age of bush vines are over 25 years old which are planted at a density of 1,600 vines per hectare.

In the winery

The grapes were crushed very lightly before being fermented and macerated on their skins for 10 days at a controlled temperature of 28ºC in stainless-steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine remained in stainless-steel tanks until bottling. The gentle handling preserved the natural fruit purity and freshness of the Monastrell grape in its most natural way.
