What the heck! It’s Hecula, that’s what. A dark fruited, spicy, medium to full bodied Spanish red packing a heap of flavour and a tonne of value.

Hecula is produced by the Castano family in the south-east of Spain in a region called Yecla. The grape is Monastrell (also called Mourvedre in France and Mataro in Aussie) and it’s absolutely at home in this part of Spain. With hot summers, long cold winters and long periods of drought – most grapes wouldn’t stand a chance. But in this environment Monastrell brings its A-game!

We could rave on all day about the rich, spicy dark fruits and silky smooth tannins – or make lame jokes about it being one “Hecula” of a deal. The fact is this wine has delivered time and time again and this latest 2021 is no different.

If you’re new to the Monastrell grape this is an awesome place to start. A great red to pair with most red meats, hearty stews and even spicy Mexican dishes.
