Goru Mad Hairy White 2015

Jumilla, Spain

Buy Now:


Distinctly rich, full and opulent. Lots of luscious flavours - apricot, yellow apple, fresh grapes, musk and flowers - bound up in a creamy, waxy body. Tastes ripe and round, but finishes dry and clean - intriguing style!

Chill well and pair with smoked ham, buttered asparagus or duck a l'orange.

Ego Bodegas' white Goru - or "Mad Hairy White", as we've re-named it - is an un-oaked blend of Moscatel (Muscat - more typically used for sweet styles) and Chardonnay. The grapes are harvested in the cool of night and fermented at low temperatures to emphasize fresh, fruity flavours. Proprietor-winemaker is Santos Ortíz.

JUMILLA is a wine region in south-east Spain, where conditions are hot, dry and tough. Some grapes can thrive here though, as there is lime in the soil, which helps retain moisture; and also because of the high, inland plateau, which offers respite from the roasting heat. Moscatel (Muscat) is a classic warm-climate variety, while Chardonnay grows well in a wide range of temperatures.
