Molino Loco Monastrell Tinto

Availability: In stock

A beautifully deep and vibrant colour, reminiscent of ripe red fruits. Balsamic hints and floral notes sit beneath deep flavours of plums and cherries. A light touch of oak and soft, rounded tannins are followed by fresh fruits, making this a balanced and easy drinking wine.

More information:

The Molino Loco wines are made by Bodegas Castaño and display the exceptionally good value, modern packaging and whistle-clean, fruit forward style that are hallmarks of the family’s other wines. Molino Loco is the affectionate name for the windmill (‘molino’) that sits on the edge of the Castaño vineyards where the grapes are grown. In contrast to other windmills, which turn in windy conditions, this particular windmill is ‘loco’ (the Spanish for crazy) as it turns only on calm, still days. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 500m above sea level and have a north-south orientation.

The soils are sandy with a lime content that gives the wines a good level of minerality. The average age of the vines is 16 years and they are planted at an average density of 2,700 vines per hectare, trellised and pruned short.

The Molino Loco Tinto is grown in the Castaño family vineyards, situated in the north of Yecla located at an altitude of 750 metres above sea level. The vineyards are dry-farmed (they are not irrigated) and the limestone soil is poor. This means that the roots of the vines grow deep into the earth in their search for precious minerals and nutrients, which helps ensure healthy, ripe, flavoursome grapes. The Monastrell vineyards are over 50 years old, while the Syrah vines are slightly younger, averaging around 15 years.
