16 to 25 hectoliters per hectare, which is about half of that permitted in Burgundy. An amazing value, this wine boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, scorched earth, licorice and forest floor. Stunningly pure and medium to full-bodied with oodles of fruit, this is a remarkable value to drink until the cows come home. Consume it over the next 2-3 years."

Over the past several years, we have become unabashed fans of the wines produced in the once unheralded region of Jumilla. The vines in this parched and seemingly barren region in south-east Spain produce wines of incredible richness and concentration at unbelievable prices. Casa Castillo produces this outstanding Monastrell-based wine without chemicals and practices organic farming. Robert Parker gushed about this estate writing, “Considered by many observers to be the finest estate in Jumilla, Casa Castillo is a treasure-trove for fabulous values, particularly from the Monastrell (Mourvedre) grape that loves the chalky terroirs and cool slopes of the Sierra del Molar.”

On the nose, the wine displays aromas of dark sumptuous fruits, Kirsch and baking spices. On the palate, this wine shows great purity showcasing ripe black and blue fruit with notions of vanilla bean and semi-sweet chocolate that only enhance the complexity of this delicious wine. The tannins are supple and silky smooth on this delicious wine which has no hard edges. We are excited to be able to offer this outstanding hand-harvested wine, which is absolutely delicious and an incredible value.

long history of grape growing and wine production, which was probably introduced by the ancient Romans. The 'Golden Age of Alicante' wines was during the 16th and 17th centuries, when they were imported to northern Europe by English, Swedish and Flemish merchants. While this 'Golden Age' may have been long ago, the wines produced from this area are still fantastic and can be some of the best-priced, 'top value' wines we see and taste.

The grape used in this wine is 100% Monastrell with the age of the vines ranging from 25-35 years old. The soil is very chalky and are at an elevation of some 2,100 feet above sea level. The winery owns (80 hectares) 192 acres of vineyards, some of which are certified organic.
