El Molar Casa Castillo 2011
Over the Easter weekend we had the opportunity to taste a number of wines from all over the map. However,there were a couple of standouts in particular and I believe both of our wine picks today come from Spain.
So my choice today comes from the DO Jumilla,which is situated in southeastern Spain in the northern part of the Murcia region. Spain actually is really enjoying a bit of a renaissance, producing awesome wines and getting well deserved recognition including the DO Jumilla.
So my wine pick is the Casa Castillo 2011 El Molar. Made with 100% Garnacha from the Jumilla region. Despite clocking a 15% alcohol content, it was so well balanced, had beautiful red fruit on the nose, a hint of oak , softer tannins but still with a little bite. It went really well with all the foods on the table. I really enjoyed this wine
