Molino Loco

Murcia, murcia Spain

The Molino Loco wines are made by Familia Castaño and display the exceptionally good value, modern packaging and whistle-clean, fruit-forward style that are hallmarks of the family's other wines.



Molino Loco is the affectionate name for the windmill ('molino') that sits on the edge of the Castaño vineyards. 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 vineyards are located at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level and have a north-south orientation. The soils are sandy with a lime content that gives the wines a hallmark freshness. The average age of the vines is 17 years and they are planted at an average density of 2,700 vines per hectare, trellised and pruned short.



The Macabeo displays wonderful varietal fruit characteristics of fresh peach and white flower blossom. On the palate, it is lively, with juicy fruit and a zesty finish. The Monastrell has vibrant notes of ripe red cherry, blackberry and plum on the nose, it is very easy-drinking with soft tannins and a smooth finish. The Monastrell Rosado boasts inviting berry aromas and a refreshing acidity.
