My Notes:

About Bodegas Sierra Salinas:

In 2000 the Castano family acquired and re-organized old vineyards located at the foot of the Sierra Salinas Mountains, between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante, and built the Bodegas Sierra Salinas. The vineyards are situated at diverse altitudes with a range of soil types and arid micro-climates characterized by cold winters and warm summers.

Five different grape varieties are grown on the property including: non-irrigated Monastrell bush vines (50% of the total density of the plantation) and irrigated Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tintorera and Petit Verdot.
