Professional Wine Reviews for Castano Monastrell Yecla 2014

Rated 90 by Decanter
Deep ruby. Vibrant, sharply focused and complex on the nose, displaying fresh red berries, cherry pits, Asian spices and incense. The palate is juicy and taut with bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors and a sexy floral pastille nuance. Closes silky and gently sweet, with resonating floral and spice notes. This vibrant, insanely inexpensive wine was made entirely in stainless steel, with one-third whole clusters. (Galloni)

Additional Information on Castano Monastrell Yecla 2014

Winery: Castano

Varietal: Mourvedre

In many parts of the world, from Washington State to France, Australia to Spain, wineries have been working with the Mourvèdre varietal grape to achieve fantastic and fascinating results. The grape varietal is actually a relatively ancient one, believed to have been brought to Spain from Asia Minor over two thousand years ago. The Mourvèdre grape is generally considered to be a difficult one to cultivate, as it requires both heat, light and moisture, meaning wineries wishing to grow Mourvèdre need to be well irrigated, but in hot regions where the vines will be safe from rot. The grapes hold lots of unusual and interesting flavors, ranging from meaty and gamey, to brambly and full of dark fruit notes. As such, the wines they produce can be matched with lots of different foods, making them popular around the world.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
