This red wine belongs to the second group, as it was bottled with just 0.6 grams of residual sugar. This silky and velvety red wine is full-bodied and multi-layered on the palate. Due to its concise fruit acid, the El Molar Jumilla reveals itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The final of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of Valencia, more precisely from the Jumilla DO, finally impresses with good reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral hints of the soils dominated by sand and gravel.
Vinification of the El Molar Jumilla from Casa Castillo
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Garnacha. Only the best grapes were used for this wonderfully powerful varietal wine from Casa Castillo. In Valencia, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of sand and gravel. After the grapes are harvested, they are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Then fermentation takes place in small wood and large wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the powerful El Molar Jumilla is aged for several months in French and American oak barrels.
