Molino Loco Monastrell, Familla Castano, 75cl
Molino Loco is made by the Castaño family in Yecla and takes its name from the windmill ('molino') that sits on the edge of the vineyards where they produce their fruit. In contrast to other windmills, which turn in windy conditions, this particular windmill is "loco", the Spanish for crazy, as it turns only on calm, still days.
The perfect weekday wine, this Monastrell is made in a fresh modern style, with notes of vibrant ripe red cherry, blackberry and plum. Approachable and soft, it has ripe tannins and a smooth finish.
