    Get set to go loco baby! We’re talking Molino Loco by Castano, one of the best value Spanish producers around (and if you’ve tried other Monastrell labels by Castano you’ll know exactly what we mean!), a jaw droppingly good deal we’ve picked up on the final stocks of this award winning, 91/00 rated ’18 vintage.

    Molino Loco means ‘crazy windmill’ – but it’s this deal that’ll actually blow you away. Usually selling for $16.99 full price and $14-15 on special, this is the best deal in town and not to be repeated! Don’t hesitate, grab a case or two or three then tell your mates – this is the winter quaffer that over delivers and then some! We don’t reckon you’ll find a better red anywhere for the money.

    Don’t worry if you haven’t the foggiest about Spanish wine or what Monastrell is – just know this is a medium bodied red, rich and juicy style, deliciously easy drinking with red berry and spice flavours and silky smooth tannins. If this sounds like a bit of you, you’d be mad to miss it!

    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!

    Made from 100% hand picked grapes from 50 year old vines this is 90% Monastrell with a 10% splash of Syrah for colour, fragrance and spice!

    Scoring 4 1/2 Stars and 91/100 by Wine Orbit’s Sam Kim, who loved its “black/blueberry, spiced cherry, floral and spicy oak characters. The palate displays lovely fruit intensity and supple mouthfeel….at its best now to 2023.”
