A bit of a legend in NZ for sheer quality and value.
This oak-aged Monastrell (a grape known in France as Mourvèdre) was produced by Bodegas Castaño on two high altitude older vineyards averaging 750m above sea level. There's a specific microclimate in these areas that differentiate it from the rest of the estate's holdings, with very cold winters and hot summers, leading to greater depth and concentration in the wines. You'll find an aromatic glassful, with raspberry and liquorice notes and a floral hint. To taste (or rather to drink), it's ripe and rich, with smooth black fruit laced with vanilla spice from the oak.
