Collection: Grape Variety - Red Grapes - Castelao

Castelão, one of Portugal's most widely planted red grape varieties, is renowned for its versatility and ability to produce deeply coloured, tannic wines that mature beautifully with age. Predominantly found in the southern regions of Portugal, especially in Setúbal Peninsula, Castelão thrives in sandy soils, contributing to the creation of wines with a distinctive character. These wines often exhibit a rich array of flavours, including red fruits, plum, and blackberry, with subtle hints of spice and earthy undertones, making them both complex and appealing. Hay Wines has recognised the potential of Castelão, importing and selling wines made from this varietal to the UK market. Their selection allows wine lovers to explore the unique taste profile and rich heritage of Portuguese wines, offering a glimpse into the traditional yet dynamic winemaking landscape of Portugal through the lens of Castelão.
