Lots of forest notes on the nose and palate together with ripe and acid fruits. Finely integrated tannins.
Jumilla by Casa Castillo is made from younger vines sourced mainly from La Valle vineyard. Primarily Monastrell (Mourvedre), in any given vintage, 8-15% of the blend includes Syrah and Garnacha. After a natural fermentation in tank the wine is aged for 8-9 months in neutral 500 liter French oak barrels, concrete tanks or foudre.
"Like all the wines from the property, fermented with indigenous yeasts, in this case with grapes from different plots, and matured in used oak barrels for eight to nine months Juicym primary, incredibly fresh with a vertical palate, longer than wider, like a hypothetical blend of 2013 and 2015, cool but dry. This is always great value.
In the sun-drenched landscapes of Jumilla in southeastern Spain, the land gets 300 days of sunshine and little-to-no rain. It’s an unlikely place for fantastic wines to come from, but the vintages produced by Casa Castillo continue to defy the odds.
José María Vicente is a third-generation owner and operator of the Casa Castillo winery. When his grandfather bought the estate in 1941, the property had an existing winery, cellar and a few scattered vineyards on the land, originally built by French settlers dating back to 1870.
José Maria and his family have been working on their estate since 1991, raising the profile of the Jumilla winemaking region with their product. Together they have worked old-vine Monastrell and Grenache into brilliant vintages produced with excellence.
What’s really special about José is that after 30 years, he’s really coming into the sweetest point of his winemaking career, creating his best wines to date.
José has mentored many producers in our portfolio. Envinate, Javi Revert of La Comarcal and Comando G have all worked many vintages alongside him. He’s even earned the nickname “Patrón” in the industry and is an icon of sorts to younger winemakers.
