Details
Casa Castillo is the leading winery in Jumilla and owner Jose Marie is continually working on making better wines. He was one of first wineries in the region to farm organically and he believes strongly in the indigneous Monastrell (Mourvedre). The Vino de Finca is a relatively new wine for him (first vintage was 2015) and it comes from several of the oldest plots of Monastrell on the estate with a little bit of Garnacha added in.  The wine undergoes indigenous fermentation, inclusion of whole clusters, and a gentle maceration –all in 1200L French oak vats.

"There is a big jump in depth, complexity and nuance between the Monastrell and the 2017 Vino de Finca, which is a blend of Monastrell with almost 25% Garnacha. This comes from four plots that were selected from what was previously used for the entry-level Monastrell; they aim was to find a wine with more finesse and elegance but with the inherent power of the zone. This is only the third vintage for this cuvee, and it feels quite established and different from the rest of the range; it has less varietal character and is more about the place, getting closer to the single-vineyard bottlings where they do not search for fruit character. The idea here is to ferment at temperatures that are quite so low and to stabilize the wine in oak barrels for a long-ish time (12 months in 500-liter barrels and 5,000-liter oak foudres). They are wines of sun and limestone. This is a good reflection of it with a perfumed and floral note on the finish (elegance!) that is quite remarkable." 93+ points Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
