Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2021 La Tendida is the second vintage of this wine from young vines planted between 2006 and 2010 in an area where they are going to keep growing as they transition from the valley to more limestone-rich soils in other parts of the property. It was produced with 75% Monastrell and 25% Garnacha and matured in oak foudre. It has an elegant rusticity compared with Las Gravas or Pie Franco bottlings, with a combination of herbs, flowers, earth and tree bark, with very fine tannins and a chalky finish. It has ripeness, power, elegance and balance. 40,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in February/March 2023.

Features

Description

Casa Castillo La Tendida is a wine that excellently represents the oldest vines of the winery's vineyards. Made mainly from 85% Monastrell and 15% Garnacha, this wine has an intense colour, an expressive nose and a fresh and refined taste. It surprises for its fruity character and its persistence in the mouth.
It comes from a selection of plots in an area known on the estate as 'La Tendida'. This is an area of gentle north-facing slopes where the soils are sandy and calcareous. The plants are between 12 and 15 years old, vase trained and yields are low. Cultivation is dry-farmed.

Elaboration

The winemaking process is minimal intervention. Alcoholic fermentation is traditional and takes place spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in underground stone vats at a temperature of between 30º and 32º degrees centigrade. Seventy percent destemmed grapes and 30% whole grapes are used. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in vats. It is aged for 12 months in 5,000-litre foudres and 500-litre oak barrels. The wine is bottled unclarified and unfiltered.

Taste

In Casa Castillo La Tendida the contribution of the Garnacha is especially noticeable on the nose, where there are evident fruity notes that Monastrell does not usually have. On the palate, the wine is more spicy, with a medium/high body. It is quite elegant and refined, being a balanced and enjoyable wine, with a persistence in the mouth that surprises and delights the palate. Notes of ripe fruit, dried herbs, red fruit and spicy hints combine to offer a unique sensory experience.
