The wine has a medium to deep red colour. Aromatic, and intense with great complexity. The palate has smoky, red fruits (redcurrants and strawberries) with tones of vanilla and spice. The texture is lush with soft tannins with long flavours of red fruits and vanilla.

The grapes used in this Garnacha come from 50 year old bush vines at high altitudes with stony soils. The grapes are hand-picked. The wine is made with classical vinification at lower temperatures with 12 month’s barrel ageing, and undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is unfiltered to preserve tannin structure and purity.

Based in the Cariñena area of Aragón, 300km north-east of Madrid and 150km south of Rioja, Castillo de Monseran wines are produced by Bodegas San Valero under the supervision of winemakers Jesús Prieto and Hugh Ryman. Their vineyards are planted at between 350 and 700 metres above sea level and benefit from a continental climate with with warm days and cool nights during the ripening period, leading to optimum grape maturation. Together Jesús and Hugh work with a team of viticulturalists to select appropriate vineyard parcels and to choose the right moment for picking. They describe Castillo de Monséran as the new Clasico and it is easy to see why as they wines are modern interpretations of the classic taste of Spanish red wines.

Drink with slow-cooked belly pork, or perhaps chorizo with chickpeas.
