2015 Castillo del Baron Monastrell
Yecla is 50km inland from Alicante, halfway down the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Despite the proximity to the sea, the land rises rapidly here, with vineyard altitudes of 500 to 700 plus metres. The high altitudes here ensure "continental" influences to the otherwise Mediterranean climate ¬in particular cooler evenings and cold nights, which help preserve freshness and acidity as the grapes ripen.
Castillo de Baron Monastrell is an explosion of fresh, ripe red and black fruit, with a warm Mediterranean spicy/earthy twist. On the palate, the wine is soft and fruity, and very well-framed by crisp natural acidity. The finish is clean, harmonious, and more-ish.
100% Monastrell (also known as Mourvèdre)
