El Molar | Casa Castillo

Garnacha has been grown in Jumilla for centuries but has mainly been used in blends. This seems remarkable considering how closely the terroir of Jumilla resembles that of the Southern Rhone. Jose Maria planted Garnacha as an experiment about 10 years ago and this fresh, aromatic wine is the happy result.
