Bodega Castano Hecula Monastrell Yecla DO

2014

In a Nutshell

Punchy and robust Spanish red

Tasting Notes

A deep purple colour in the glass, exuding rich, elegant aromas of blueberries, ripe raspberries and liquorice with a subtle floral touch and a chalky character. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with an inviting richness and soft fruit that is integrated with oak notes in this extremely well-balanced red.

Production Notes

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 10 days at 24-26°C. The wine was then aged for six months in oak barrels of which 50% were new. The oak used was 80% French and 20% American.

Grape Blend

Press Quotes & Awards

This pure fruit-focused expression of Monastrell combines sweet spice, fresh leather and dark cherry and berry aromas with notes of violet and sage, ripe tannins and a persistent finish on the luscious palate – superb value.
