Awards and Accolades

Bodegas Castaño Hecula Monastrell 2016, Yecla (6-bottles)

Woody berry and clove aromas introduce this chewy, extracted Monsatrell. Solid tannins drive its herbal plum and berry flavours, with ample woodspice and a peppery, clove-like finish. Wine Enthusiast, 88 pts

If you're a fan of Spanish red wines, and haven't yet tried Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre), this six bottle case will convert you.

It's made by the Castaño, one of the Yecla wine region's top producers. They know the local landscape like no one else. Grapes for this powerful red wine come from vineyards high up in the hot hillsides.

Surviving both freezing winters and scorching summers, the Monastrell vines have an average age of 38-years-old. That makes for some great quality grapes, with concentrated flavours. Oak ageing is just for six months, giving a hint of vanilla and spice, just like in a fine Rioja.

Rich, full-bodied and rewarding, it's the kind of Spanish red wine that gets compliments from your friends.

Our Big Spring Clean Event has bargains galore. Don't just take our word for it. The wine experts loved this wine too.

The Producer

The family-run estate of Bodegas Castaño traces its winemaking history back through several generations and is widely regarded as one of the top producers in the region, producing mostly Monastrell (the French Mourvèdre) on high altitude vineyards

Spanish Beef & Chorizo Stew

Spicy, rich stews need a medium bodied red with bright fruit flavours. Try a smooth Spanish red such as Monastrell. Full recipe

Spain

This was a lovely surprise in my mixed case, a great full bodied woody red.
