    Casa Castillo "Vino de Finca" Tinto '16

    Jumilla

    Casa Castillo "Vino de Finca" Tinto '16

    This stunning red from Casa Castillo offers the perfect representation of the sheer value that Spanish wines can offer. This would cost triple the price if it came from the South of France!!

    Jumilla is a starkly beautiful wine region located along the Mediterranean coast of Spain just southwest of the city of Valencia. The history of Casa Castillo dates back to 1941 when the land was purchased by José Maria Vicente, the grandfather of current winemaker. At the time, they discovered remnants of an old winery that existed on that property, including old vines that had likely been planted in the 1870’s, during a time when many refugees fled France during the time of phylloxera. 

    In 1985 José Maria and his father began to replant the vineyards, largely to the native grape Monastrell (Mourvèdre). This heat and drought resistant varietal works perfectly in the vineyards of Casa Castillo and the region of Jumilla. 

    The altitude of the Casa Castillo vineyards allow for a full bodied wine that still has plenty of freshness and balance. While his winery is famous for its Monastrell, over the years he had been grafting over a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah on the property and replacing it with Garnacha (Grenache).

    ”Vino de Finca” combines 75% old-vine Monastrell with 25% Garnacha and was first produced in 2015. The grapes are hand harvested, partially destemmed, and fermented with natural yeasts in 1200-liter French oak vats. The wine is further aged in a combination of 500-liter and 5,000-liter French oak vats. It showcase its full-bodied dark fruit, herb and spice notes, along with remarkable balance. Absolutely a perfect wine to pair with grilled red meat such as lamb chops or a ribeye steaks!
