Bodegas Carchelo Jumilla Tinto 2012 750ml
Bodegas Carchelo dates from the early 1980s and pioneering efforts to modernize viticulture in what had been a backwater viticultural region. Founding partner Juan Sierva nearly 700 acres of prime vineyards are widely distributed in the region, at widely varying altitudes and exposures. Varieties grown feature Monastrell (in France Mourvedre, both ungrafted head-pruned and wire-trained vineyards) plus Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
This is a blend of 3 grape varieties, all imparting their varietal qualities, with Monastrell and Tempranillo accounting for 40% each and Cabernet Sauvignon 20%. Structure and concentration are provided by the Monastrell grapes, along with notably present tannins that give persistence. Elegance, structure and a lengthy finish are assured by the Tempranillo, while refinement and balance, along with the delicate aroma, come from the Cabernet Sauvignon. A purplish red in colour and showing its youthful intensity, the wine comes over as aromatically expressive with an abundance of fruit (blackberries) on the nose. Powerful and richly endowed with fruit, there is a touch of spice too on the palate, enhancing this very drinkable wine.
