Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Micrit Monastrell is a single-variety Monastrell red wine made by Finca Casa Castillo in the D.O. Jumilla, Murcia. 

This estate was home to a winery built by the French in 1870, but it was not until 1985 that Casa Castillo was set up by Nemesio and his son José Mª Vicente. They altered the building, keeping the structure of the winery and planted some new varieties in their vineyards. They have a total of 175 hectares spread over four plots where vines, almond trees and olive trees grow together. Everything they do is about their commitment to the Mediterranean wine region territory and their excellent results are putting D.O. Jumilla wines back on everyone’s radar. 

Micrit Monastrell is the new wine from Casa Castillo, made in collaboration with Envínate, a group of winemaker friends who champion the identity of half-forgotten wine regions. Micrit Monastrell starts life on steep slopes lying up to 760 metres above sea level. The vines grow alongside a fully Mediterranean ecosystem on limestone soil and with a limited planting density of 1,600 vines per hectare. The team use environmentally-friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually. 

When the Micrit Monastrell grapes reach the winery, they are partially destemmed and begin to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts at a controlled temperature of no more than 26ºC. It is then devatted and malolactic fermentation begins in contact with the lees in new 500-litre French oak barrels. Finally it ages and matures in the same barrels. 

Micrit Monastrell is the result of a desire to promote the qualities of a wine region that is still not very well-known. This red wine expresses the full Mediterranean essence of the native Monastrell variety in its natural habitat.

In September of 2016, the person who raised the solid foundations of both the vineyard and the winery Casa Castillo, turned 80 years old. With a glass of wine in his hand, he remembers how the first grapes were vatted under his watchful eye 25 years ago. Today, he proudly watches as the continuity of his legacy is reassured by his family. Today, the main goal of Casa Castillo is to produce quality wines with the personality, flavour and character of each plot, which respect for the tradition of the area, and expressing the features of the land and the microclimate, as well as the particularities of the Mediterranean varieties, mainly on the native red variety Monastrell.

To speak of Jumilla wine is to really refer to the Monastrell grape variety. In recent years Jumilla has undergone an impressive transformation. Once used as concentrated and highly alcoholic wines to give strength to weaker wines from other regions, the wines from Jumilla have managed to change this reputation, now enjoying prestige from all over the world. Flavourful wines, with body and concentrated. As well as red wines, the region is also known for their rosés, again produced with the Monastrell variety.
