Food Pairings for Castillo del Barón Monastrell Yecla
Yecla is 50km inland from Alicante, the vines located at over 500 metres,<br/>the soils limestone and clay....a far cry in every respect apart from<br/>physical distance from the famous, sometimes infamous beaches of the Costa<br/>Brava. It transpires that Yecla is the centre of the Spanish furniture<br/>industry, if industry is the correct word; this probably explains the robust<br/>and well-upholstered nature of this wine. It is fleshy and soft but with<br/>characteristic Monastrell tannins to lend architectural integrity and firm<br/>acidity , the result of both the elevated location of the vines but also the<br/>fact that Monastrell is indigenous here and not only ripens late but also<br/>preserves good levels of acidity. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
