Muruve Reserva, Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, Spain, 2015 (750ml)
Cherry-red in colour, the bouquet reveals aromas of smoke and ash. On the palate, the wine is very balanced, round and with a long finish. Very complex and elegant.
ABOUT THE WINE
100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) undergoes traditional maceration in stainless steel vats with 100% de-stemmed clusters. Must is pumped over 3 or 4 times a day at a fermentation-controlled temperature of 28-30 °C during 15-20 days. Wine is then transferred to barrels (90% American, 10% French) for ageing over a 20-month period and a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release. Only 6 000 cases made.
