Campos de Risca Jumilla Monastrell/Syrah 2012

Mourvedre from Spain
Review Date : 16-Sep-2014
Organically grown fruit, 90% Monastrell and 10% Syrah from ‘Campos de Risca’, Jumilla, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine bottled without oak maturation. Dark, deep, black-red colour with some bricking on rim. The bouquet is bright and aromatic with lifted, primary, ripe dark cherry and raspberry fruits, along with red florals, pepper and a little plum jam. Medium-full bodied, this has a deep and well-concentrated core of ripe black berry fruits with raspberry, plum jam and peppery flavours. The fruit is encased by good tannin extraction and grip, providing a balanced mouthfeel and structure. Discreet acidity enlivens the mouthfeel and along with the tannins, carry the wine to a long, firmly packed finish of black fruits. This is a well-concentrated Jumilla with ripe black fruits and balanced structure and grip. Match with slow-cooked game meat over the next 4-5 years. 17.5-/20 Sep 2014 RRP $16.99
