Bodegas Vina Elena Bruma del Estrecho Mandiles (750ml)
This wine comes from the Jumilla DO; it is a transition zone between the Mediterranean coastal area and the central plateau of Castile-La Mancha so the altitude of the vineyards vary between 400 and 800 m. It experiences hot days and cool nights and is still somewhat tempered by the closeness to the Mediterranean. The soils here generally permeable and retail moisture well so the vines can survive long periods drought. They are poor in organic material and very sandy so their structure does not favour the propagation of phylloxera. Viña Elena is a bodega from Jumilla located in the north of Murcia. This family-run bodega dates back to 1948 when Francisco, the current generation’s late-grandfather, began to make wine from his modest winepress at the family estate.
100% Monastrell from Jumillla DO in the province for Murcia. Notes of licorice and balsamic, eucalyptus aromas. Broad mouthfeel and dark fruit flavours.
This single vineyard beauty hails from high altitude vineyards in the desert-like terrain of Jumilla. The grapes come from 60+ year old, ungrafted vines and are hand harvested. Think powerful elegance with a good dose of minerality.
