Castaño Organic Monastrell 2016, Yecla, Murcia, Spain

Castaño symbolises the best of what southern Spain has to offer: rich, warm climate wines made from grapes grown at altitude and transformed into robustly modern wines. For several generations, Bodegas Castaño has been a pioneer in the region.

The grapes are grown on organic plots at 750 metres above sea level, a perfect area for organic production. Dry, sunny weather and specific soil conditions here give little chance for mould or pests to thrive, allowing a pesticide-free and agrochemical-free crop every year. The average age of the bush vines is 22 years old.

Intense and shiny ruby red. Morello cherry perfumes compliment notes of stewed fruit and sweet spice. On the palate, the Monastrell is structured but silky and bursting with fruit.

Pairs well with meats that are roasted or smoked and dishes with hearty sauces slightly acidic. Beef, lamb, game, veal or pork grilled, roasted or smoked, barbeque, chilli, cold cuts, hamburgers, meatloaf, sausages, mushrooms, cheese based pasta, risotto, truffle oil
