2014 ‘CLOS LAGORU’ MONASTRELL Ecológico – Ego Bodegas
We are very pleased to be bringing this deliciously drinkable new listing to the UK. Organically made in the hills of Jumilla in south eastern Spain. This is rich and deep with lovely spiced plum and a touch of baked morello cherry. Best known as the grape of Provence’s much sought after Bandol (where it is known as Mourvèdre), structure and intensity abound – but this is no beast – the weight of fruit is soft and luxurious with no hard edges. This is a great example of what Spain can do so well, huge bang for your buck. Ready to drink now this will give lots of pleasure. A great value wine from this newly signed up bodega. L&S

Set up 10 years ago Bodegas Ego is located in the heart of Jumilla, between the high plains of La Mancha and the Mediterranean to the east. These two features have a great influence on the climate – largely continental, this is a very warm region for growing grapes – with long, hot summers and cool, wet winters. These are ideal conditions for the native Monastrell grape, which naturally ripens slowly and has thicker skins than many grapes giving perfect defence against this extreme climate.
The twenty-five year old vines produce classically small bunches which are harvested in early October by hand, once they are at optimum ripeness – with a good concentration of sugar, excellent acidity and an impressive weight of fruit.
This super wine is certified ‘organic’ and no chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers are used in the vineyards at all – preserving the pure fruit expression and importantly the health of the land. Read more on our website…
