Casa Castillo El Molar 2018
El Molar es una Garnacha con un perfil inédito con respecto a otros vinos elaborados con esta misma variedad ya que el sureste de España no suele ser su zona de procedencia más habitual. Se presenta como un tinto sumamente disfrutable en el que destaca su carácter goloso así como su amplia frescura y fluidez.
Las notas balsámicas y especiadas de este vino armonizan perfectamente con la textura suave de la berenjena.

Opinión de los críticos
The varietal Garnacha 2018 El Molar war produced with grapes from three different plots within the estate on different soils (gravel and sand with a limestone base) planted in 2004, 2006 and 2010. It fermented in underground stone pools with 50% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in 5,000-liter oak foudres and 500-liter oak barrels for 14 months. It's a perfect example of the more delicate and slightly lighter style of the vintage, serious, nuanced and harmonious, a little closed and very young. Continental and cooler vintages take more time to open up, and this starts quite shy and requires plenty of air and time in the glass to start taking off. The summer was very short and the start of the harvest was late. It has refreshing acidity and very fine tannins with a more subtle profile than the 2017 with an herbal touch of freshness in the finish. It has to be one of the most delicate vintages of El Molar, and they also managed to increase volumes as the newest Garnacha vineyards come into production, so it's also used for other blends. This is every bit as good as the best vintage produced. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2019. - Luis Gutiérrez.
