The Castaño family have pioneered the Monastrell grape in southern Spain’s Yecla region for 40 years – making big, rich, easy-to-love reds that are fast bringing Yecla into the international spotlight. Their Castaño Ecologico is made using 100% organic grapes and delivers pure drinkability and great bang for your buck.
Bodegas Castaño is one of Yecla’s top bodegas, attracting the praise (and awards) of critics the world over
Monastrell really comes into its own in Yecla – this hardy little grape endures the long periods of drought and soaks up every drop of sunlight to ripen to full-flavoured perfection
All grapes are organically grown and fermented in stainless steel rather than oak to preserve the fresh, vibrant, fruity flavours
Tasting note:Spiced plum aromas greet you when you pour, layered by notes of sweet earthy spice – cinnamon and cloves. Every sip delivers bundles of juicy red morello cherry. So silky-smooth and easy-drinking.
