Molinico Loco, Macabeo 2023

Molinico Loco, Macabeo 2023

  • About

    Based in Yecla, Murcia, this winery is known for its huge efforts to promote one of Spain’s native varieties: Macabeo.

    Made by Familia Castaño, the Molinico Loco wines share the same exceptionally good value, modern packaging and whistle-clean, fruit-forward style that are hallmarks of the family’s other wines.

    Molinico 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 elevation of 500 metres, with a north-south orientation. The soils are sandy with a lime content that gives the wines their hallmark freshness.

  • Tasting Note

    This delicious Macabeo displays wonderful varietal fruit characteristics of fresh peach and white flowers. On the palate, it is lively, with juicy fruit and a zesty finish
