Ego Bodegas Goru Gold Red Blend 2017
This wine is the result of a rigorous selection process, choosing only the best grapes from the Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon variety. The grapes were harvested in the third week of October at their optimum ripening point in 15 kg boxes. The selected fruit was chosen by the same wise hands that did it the previous year. The grapes corresponding to each variety were macerated in contact with the skin and fermented for 20/30 days at a controlled temperature of 28oC. It has spent 12 months in new french and american oak barrels.
This red is sleek and solid, in the modern style. Bright cherry, berry and currant flavors mingle with licorice, black tea and mineral notes, giving way to a floral and minerally finish. The firm tannins are well-integrated and juicy acidity keeps this lively. Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2029. 7,400 cases made, 2,200 cases imported. — TM
Ripe, rubbery berry aromas are warm and oaky, with a chocolaty backing. A thick, grabby palate is par for the course in Jumilla, while this blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah tastes a lot like it smells: chocolaty and rich, with effusive creamy vanilla. A loaded and pulpy finish is tannnic.
