Review

El Molar is an atypical wine, an original Grenache, fresh and lighter than its origin could lead us to assume. Perhaps it will be the north orientation of its vineyards, or the use of fudres in its upbringing, or perhaps a combination of these and other factors such as the limestone soil in which its grapes grow ... The truth is that El Molar de Casa Castillo is a wine that makes every sip fall in love. Aromatic, balsamic, brimming with fresh red fruit, creamy and fluid at the same time.

Garnacha, the 12 months in fudres and the almost eight hundred meters above sea level of the Sierra del Molar make the homonymous wine a true rarity in the region. The poverty of the soils, the strong thermal contrasts between seasons and the low pluviometry are responsible for transmitting the typicality to each grape grain. Once harvested, the fruit is transferred to the winery and only 70% skid. Without prior crushing, the grape is taken to small underground wineries where it ferments for about two weeks. Subsequently, it will carry out malolactic fermentation and aging in fudres.

In the bottle it looks cherry red and boasts aromas of wild fruit, spices and eucalyptus on a discreet wooden background. The palate exhibits a great balance between the usual maturity in these latitudes and the freshness of the altitude. Fluid and with friendly tannins, like a good Grenache, El Molar is also a wine with its own personality that, without giving up the style of the winery and the Murcian region, is capable of filling the glass with light, complexity and freshness. Its fragrance is so seductive that we are forced to warn you: it is not easy to take your nose away from the glass.

Casa Castillo

Casa Castillo

Casa Castillo was founded in 1941, when Don José Sánchez-Cerezo acquired the estate with the aim of exploiting the rosemary of the mount. Inside the same property was an old winery that, in 1985, the second generation of the family decided to restart. Thus began a new project that included the restructuring of the vineyard and the planting of new varieties. In 1991, the winery building was renovated and two years later the first wine was released. Currently, Casa Castill...
