Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell Tempranillo is a blend of the two famous grapes within the region. The entry level young wine express aromas of fresh berries and flower. The medium bodied wine is fruity with a balanced acidity and soft touch of tannin, well presented. It is a perfect choice for wedding or group gathering with friends.
Being in a lesser-known appellation in South-East of Spain, Bodegas Bleda provide their wines in a very reasonable price as well as exciting quality. The grapes are all cultivated in organic practice, although the wines are not organic certified. The resulting wines are with good concentration, balanced acidity and complex.
