Marionette Jumilla 2016

14.99

Description

Benevolent red that shows lovely spiced raspberry and grilled meat aromas, seasoned with hints of black pepper and oregano. The full-bodied, fleshy palate is open and accessible, with sweet, round tannins and delicious berry and nutmeg flavours. Marionette – the puppet – is a cheeky Shiraz-Monastrell blend that sees 3 months in American oak. A real comfort wine!

Try with venison and stroganoff sauce, chilli con carne or hoisin duck wraps.

Producer: Ego Bodegas

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.

    *COMMENDED* "Dense, inky palate full of rich, toasty, oak-enrobed blackberry fruit with warm chocolate and mocha undertones."
