Castillo de Jumilla Crianza
Cherry red color. It has rich bouquet; the woodiness of the crianza is present but it combines well; it has hints of coconut, vanilla, balsamic and minerals on top of a fine fruity substructure with a light touch of mushrooms. On tasting it is pleasant with body and warmth, tannic without being rough, with tannins that are concentrated, delectable and clean to the palate and very persistent. 90% Monastrell 10% Tempranillo. The two varieties were harvested and processed separately during the month of October 2012 with the grape collection being carried out over a period of 20 days. Coupage took place in January 2013, the wine remaining in tanks until October 2013 when they were transferred to oak barrels (American Fine and French Allier). The wine was kept in the receptacles until bottling in October 2014.
If stored properly this wine will be at its best starting from the second year until the fourth year in the bottle. It is the ideal accompaniment for salty aperitifs, cod, salmon, eggs and dried, salted tuna from the Mar Menor, strong and semi-cured cheeses. It is an excellent accompaniment to stews and casseroles and succulent meats and game; it also goes perfectly with fish in various sauces.
