Warm, fleshy blend with a big, inviting nose of blueberry pie, coffee and vanilla. The smooth, mouthfilling palate shows impressive grip and flavour concentration, with hints of blackberry jam, clove and caramel. Generous, powerful and long. Sumptuous blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Petit Verdot from the Spanish DO of Jumilla. Aged in American oak for 4 months.
Try alongside Pork Wellington with black pudding and apple sauce.
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.
"Rich and full bodied, plenty of spice and dark berry fruit... strong and strident flavours, dark depths, hefty stuff..."
*COMMENDED* "Polished, beguiling aromas of cedar and cigar smoke. The palate is lush and opulent, with rich layers of vanilla oak, tar and dark fruit. Blockbuster style."
