Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Castillo de Monjardín Garnacha Viñas Viejas La Cantera is a red wine produced by Bodegas Castillo de Monjardín in Villamayor de Monjardín,  D.O. Navarra.

 

Bodegas Castillo de Monjardín is a winery located in the centre of Navarre, at the foot of the Pyrenees, a privileged area for the cultivation of vines. This area is highly influenced by the French history and culture, which give it the tradition when it comes to producing their wines with varieties like Chardonnay, Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.

Bodegas Castillo de Monjardín has 220 hectares of vineyards located at around 700 metres of altitude, on sunny hillsides refreshed by the "Cierzo", strong cold wind characteristic of this area. These vines are between 15 and 70 years old.

All their wines are made with grapes from their own farms, with controlled fermentations, and ageing in French and American oak barrels. They combine the best traditional methods with innovation, using state-of-the-art winemaking techniques. Their aim is to produce top quality wines that represent the land where they are born.  

 

Castillo de Monjardín Garnacha Viñas Viejas La Cantera is a wine made from 100% Grenache, from the farm La Cantera. This vineyard is over 70 years old and it is located at 500 metres of altitude.

The grapes go through a traditional winemaking process. Then they ferment in stainless steel deposits with a maceration of 10 days with pump-overs. This wine is aged for 6 months in 300-litre French oak barrels.

 

Castillo de Monjardín Garnacha Viñas Viejas La Cantera is an amiable, fluid and fresh wine. The short ageing allows it to perfectly show the features of this very old Grenache, highlighting its fruitiness combined with light toastings.

Pictures and situation Bodegas Castillo de Monjardín
Some wine regions have to bear the weight of their own prestige and fame, and this is certainly the case for Navarra. For many years, the white and reds produced in this region came second to the rosés produced here with the noble Grenacha variety. However, the last two decades have seen ongoing changes in the wine-making sector in Navarra, changes which have completely transformed the styles of wine produced and have been consistently worthwhile, resulting in  some of the white and red wines produced in Navarra being ranked among best rated in Spain.
