Estate: Founded by 2nd generation winemaker Ramon Castaño Santa and his 3 sons, Bodegas Castaño is located in the Yecla region of southeastern Spain and consists of an impressive 1000 acres of vineyards. The family has helped revitalize winemaking in Yecla with their innovative spirit, emphasis on tradition and the use of indigenous grape varieties, specifically Monastrell which is known as “the king variety in Yecla”.
Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from a high altitude, single vineyard with vines 60-80 years in age, with limestone soil. Aged in stainless steel and French oak.
Tasting Notes: Inky red-violet in colour with aromas of jammy fruit, white pepper and sweet vanilla. Concentrated berry flavours [blackberry, blueberry, raspberry] with pleasantly contrasting, subtle herbaceous notes and silky tannins. White pepper, hints of chocolate and a sliver of mineralty comprise the lengthy finish.
