Heiner Lobenberg über:
El Molar 2018

93+
/100

Lobenberg: Ungewöhnlich für Casa Castillo, Grenache aus Jumilla. Volltrauben-Vergärung mit Naturhefe, das erhält die Säure und gibt Mineralität, die zwei alkoholischen Rettungsanker für Grenache unter südlicher Sonne. Ausbau im gebrauchten 500-Liter-Tonneau. Das Ergebnis? Chateauneuf du Pape aus Jumilla. Tolle rote reife Frucht, Walderdbeeren, süße rote Kirsche, Balsamico. Im Mund reif und süßlich, dennoch weder fett noch marmeladig, die Mineralik verhilft ihm zu Frische und Ausdruck. Spannend. 93+/100

Parker über: El Molar

-- Parker: The 2018 Casa Castillo is the old Monastrell wine that has been renamed with the name of the property. It's now a blend of 60% Monastrell, 20% Garnacha and 20% Syrah, partly (up to 35% of them) from vines on the valley floor, where there's a higher content in silt. The destemmed grapes fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 5,000-liter oak foudres and 500-liter oak barrels for 12 months. This is the entry-level wine, now with the three varieties and diversity of plots and soils, and it shows the character of the year in the property, more continental than Mediterranean. There is more Garnacha and an unusually high percentage of Syrah, more or less the proportion of each variety in the estate, which seems to mark the wine. I also tasted the pure Syrah (Valtosca), and it had an herbal touch that was also coming through in this blend. It has a little less alcohol than the 2017 and is juicy, medium to full-bodied and with very chalky tannins. It's powerful and balanced, and it transcends the price level and overdelivers as an entry-level wine. 130,000 bottles produced. There is one master blend that is bottled throughout the year. What I tasted had been bottled in February 2020, the first lot, L-1. 91+/100
