REGION: Yecla, Murcia, Spain
INFO: 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.
The grapes were crushed very lightly before being fermented and macerated on their skins for 10 days at a controlled temperature of 28°C in stainless-steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine remained in stainless-steel tanks until bottling. The gentle handling preserved Monastrell's natural fruit purity and freshness.
This wine is deep ruby in colour. Aromas of ripe black cherry, plum and liquorice emerge on the nose. Supple mouthfeel and velvety tannins give way to a juicy, fruit-forward finish.
