Konzentriertes Rot mit violetten Reflexen, im Bouquet schwingen Brombeeren, Blaubeeren, Pflaumen, Vanille und mediterrane Kräuternote mit. Am Gaumen saftig und kraftvoll. Viel Frucht eingefasst in dunkle Schokolade und würzige Akzente. Erstaunlich gut integriertes Tannin lassen diesen Wein elegant und charmant auftreten. Das Finale ist wie schon der Auftakt intensiv und konzentriert.

Dark ruby. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry, star anise and candied rose, with a touch of orange zest. Smells like a ripe pinot noir. Fleshy and seamless, offering sappy red fruit flavors and a bitter note of rhubarb. Subtle vanilla and licorice notes linger on the smooth, gently tannic finish. Lots of wine for the money.

Made from 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre), Casa Castillo’s 2011 Monastrell comes from incredibly low yields (16 hectoliters per hectare). It reveals abundant flavor along with a chalky minerality, dense blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, medium body and a supple texture. This is an amazing red wine for such a lowly price.


Winemaker's Notes:

WINE NOTESVineyards: Sourced from Valley vineyards. Farming: Sustainable. Age of Vines: Young vines, up to 22 years. Altitude: 750 meters. Aging: 6months in French oak barrels, 3-4 years old, 500 litres ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Casa CastilloIn 1941, Mr. Jose Sanchez-Cerezo acquired the 'Propiedad Viticola Casa Castillo' for development of rosemary. In the property was a winerybuilt in 1870 by the French when phylloxera forced them out of their vineyards in France (Jumilla is one of the few places in Spain thatsuccessfully resisted the infestation of phylloxera, hence making it an ideal place for this new winery). In 1985, the second generation of thefamily (Mr. Nemesio and his son Jose M Vicente) revived the property with the reconstruction of the vineyard and with the introduction of newvarieties. In 1991 the wine cellar was reformed to preserve its origin
