Tasting Notes

"The 2014 Campo Arriba comes from one of the highest elevations in Yecla and it's a blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah and 10% Grenache aged three months in small French oak. This winery, started in 1925 by the Candela family, has really hit pay day with this amazing value. Blackberries, blueberries, acacia flowers, and chalky minerality dominate the aromatics and flavors. It is full-bodied, the price is absurdly low for a wine of this quality, and I suspect it can age nicely for another 5-6 years, although its true value is its exuberance, fruit purity and density."

The Producer

Señorio de Barahonda

Señorio de Barahonda is the oldest winery in the Yecla DO region of Spain. Its history started around 1850 when Pedro Candela Soriano started to produce and sell small amounts of wine locally. In 1925, when the late Antonio Candela García inherited a small production facility, the history of the winery officially started. Nowadays, his two sons, Antonio and Alfredo, take the helm and manage the wineries and the family estates.

From a small and local business to a modern winery which produces quality wines highly appreciated in the international markets, the knowledge and traditions have been handed down through these four generations. The Candela Family has spent a lifetime working with wine and Barahonda is the visible result of this passion.

Winemaker Augustin Carrion is one of the key figures whose work has shown the potential of Monastrell in Yecla. Monastrell is better known as Mourvédre in France's Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, where the terroir and climate are similar to Yecla. Both regions have a Mediterranean climate with warm days and nights.
