Jumilla is part of the Murcia region in the Levante province of Spain. It benefits from an arid, but gentle inland climate with some assistance from the nearby Mediterranean. Though it can get quite hot, its elevated plateaus give it some relief, and soil rich in limestone some much-needed moisture. Like its neighboring regions of Yecla and Bullas, the predominant grape grown is Monastrell (the same as France’s Mourvèdre). The Monastrell produced in Jumilla is often considered the best.  

The grapes respond well to these growing conditions and produce some well-structured wines.

  • Bodegas Casa Castillo El Molar 2014


    Brilliant ruby red. Suave, smoke infected cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by touches of violet and cracked pepper. The palate shows very good focus, with a spicy nuance lifting the gently sweet, energetic black raspberry, cherry cola and lavender pastille flavors. Supple, well knit tannins give firmness to the clinging, floral fini... Read More
