for this region?


This is a small region within the Murcia province surrounded by Jumilla, Almansa and Alicante (of the Comunidad de Valenciana region). The wines are labeled and districted according to the quality of the grapes: Grapes from Yecla Campo Arriba are considered the best quality since the vines tend to be older. Yecla Campo Abajo, is considered inferior, but is nonetheless an enjoyable wine to sip on. 
The climate is Mediterranean shifting inland to continental, mostly very hot and dry. Monastrell (Mourvedre) is best suited for plantings under these conditions, with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah used in blends. Young wines are often made in the carbonic maceration style, like Beaujolais Nouveau. But fine barrel-aged wines, especially from the Arriba level grapes, can be found. 
White wines are made from Airen and Macabeo (Viura).

  • Bodegas Castaño Monastrell Yecla 2009


    Opaque black plum hue, aromas of dark stone fruits, leather and spice, flavor notes of dark berries, dried game and leather, integrated tannins, bright acidity, with a rich mouthfeel that lingers to a moderate finish. Great Value to pair with roast meats and game dishes. Read More

    Soft ripe fruits balanced by lithe, structural-yet-refined tannins. Here and there a note of oak, woody herbs or chocolate. Tasty, engaging and with a strong backbone. Read More
