2016 Castaño Coleccion
Monastrell / Cabernet Sauvignon
From 50 year old bush vines on stony, sandy and limestone soils. The grapes are hand harvested and sorted. Fermented on the skins in stainless steel tanks, the wine then undergoes maturation for 10 months in new French oak barrels.
Deep shiny garnet colour with violet highlights. On the nose it is complex, with ripe blackberries aromas of blueberries and raspberries along with delicated clove and pepper spices. Aged in oak it has cacao and vanilla nuances. Soft on the palate with sweet tannins, good concentration, a complex mouthfeel and velvety finish.
