Deep ruby in colour, a nose of ripe black fruits with an elegant spice, candied notes and delicate toastiness. A savoury, full-bodied wine on the palate showing refined tannins and length. Amply-satisfying red that boasts a lovely, caressing texture, layers of flavour and a voluptuous mouthfeel. Made from 25-year-old organic Monastrell vines, aged for 2 months in American oak – lush, lovely and long.
Drink with duck in plum sauce, barbecued food or Spanish meatballs and chorizo.
The boutique winery Ego Bodegas is located just a few kilometres from the historic city centre of Jumilla in Murcia, South East Spain. Proprietor - winemaker Santos Ortíz decided a little over a decade ago to create a state of the art modern winery to showcase the centuries old native grape of the region, Monastrell, and create a range of accessible wines from other varietals such as Syrah, Petit Verdot and white grapes Muscadet and Chardonnay which surprisingly flourish in this dry and arid region.
Ego Bodegas has 25 hectares of 50 year old vineyards with the grapes of each of the vineyards fermenting in separate steel tanks of 4000 to 20,000 litre capacity.
*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED* "Ripe black fruit with a vanilla tone [...] fleshy, sweet and smooth. Well balanced and attractive."
