This wine has long been a customer favourite for us, we've often struggled to keep up with stocks when we promote it, as its quality and value are simply unbeatable. It's a big wine that's light on its feet while it dances across your palate. It's incredibly versatile matching with most grilled meats, Tapas, Mexican type spices, hearty casseroles, eggplant and hard cheeses. It's an absolute must have for your next BBQ. And they always release their reds with a few years of age on them, which at this price is an absolute treat and often hard to find here in our domestic market.
The Castano Family have been making wines since 1950, with most of their original vines still pumping out the good stuff in this Hecula. Ramon Castano was one of the pioneers of the Monastrell grape and today the Family own almost 500 hectares in the region. Their focus has always been on quality. As a family business, they're always looking to protect their environment for the next generation. They practice sustainable winemaking and have introduced many organic processes. They are on the path to a full conversion to Organics, and aim to complete that by 2023.
Those old vines are still packing a fruity punch with plenty of ripe juicy plums sitting alongside the more mature nuances of coffee, chocolate and a hint of liquorice. A great grippy mouthfeel from oak aging and a wonderful tight structural finish - serious wine, that's seriously under-rated!
So grab a case today as your new BBQ go to, while stocks last!
