Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The perfect Mediterranean vintage produced an outstanding Garnacha. The 2020 El Molar fermented with 35% full clusters and matured in a combination of 500-liter barrels and 5,000-liter foudres for one year. The wine is very young and tender; it feels more delicate despite having a little more alcohol than the 2019 (it's 15%) and with a slightly lower pH (3.49). It's super aromatic, extroverted and expressive, floral, elegant and complex. There is great balance, and the wine feels fresher and less ripe; it's refreshing and has a core of minerality and super fine tannins with pungent flavors. There is precision, elegance and balance, the three words that define the vintage. All the wines are very good value, but this is a steal. 40,000 bottles were filled in March 2022.

Features

Description

Casa Castillo El Molar is a red wine from the Jumilla region. This wine is a unique representation of Garnacha, which distinguishes it from other wines made from this variety. It is especially remarkable because southeastern Spain is not commonly recognised as a typical provenance area for this variety. Casa Castillo has demonstrated its mastery in the making of this wine, presenting a highly enjoyable red wine, with a sweet character, marked by ample freshness and fluidity.

Winemaking

The wine comes from plots located on the slopes of the Sierra del Molar. These vines, aged between 13 and 16 years, grow in sandy loam soils covered with gravel, under a continental Mediterranean climate.
The grapes are harvested by hand and 50% of the grapes are destemmed during vinification. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous, using indigenous yeasts in underground stone vats at temperatures of between 30 and 32 ºC. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in vats. It is aged for 14 months, combining 500-litre barrels and 5,000-litre foudres.

Taste

Casa Castillo El Molar stands out for its frank and sincere flavour, characteristic of Casa Castillo wines. It presents notes of blue and red flowers, together with fresh red fruit and vegetables, making it easy, elegant and subtle on the palate.
On the palate, you can perceive a tannin that is still slightly grippy, and a subtle, almost imperceptible wood at an aromatic level, which provides structure, fat and final volume.
It is a wine that can be enjoyed in its youth if you prefer livelier flavours, or cellared for a couple of years for those looking for a silkier, more fluid experience.
