Familia Castaño, 'Organic Monastrell', 2018, Yecla DO, Spain


This wine is deep ruby red in colour. An intense fruity aroma with hints of balsamic and spice. It's very juicy, concentrated, fresh, and lively. A very slight touch of sweetness on the finish. A good example of Monastrell which is excellent paired with rich foods and dishes like roast meats, grills, hard cheeses, or hearty veg stews.

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.
