Crápula Gold 5 Meses 2017
Availability: In stock
The vines grow in limestone soils with low levels of organic matter, at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level. Climate is Mediterranean-continental.
Belonging to the DO Jumilla, this Spanish red wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks at a temperature below 28ºC. Destemmed and gently crushed, the grapes were macerated for over a period of 10 days.
Afterwards, they were aged for 5 months in French and American oak barrels.
Finally, Crápula Gold 5 Meses 2017 was clarified with egg whites, and naturally filtered through gravity before its bottling.
The red wine Crápula Gold 5 Meses has a bright, medium-high, cherry-coloured robe with a purplish rim.
This blend of Monastrell and Syrah is truly Mediterranean. Fresh aromas of ripe wild berries, over a thin layer of spices (vanilla, clove, cinnamon), herbs and toasted notes.
This red wine from Jumilla is easy and drinker-friendly. Flavours of red fruit, a touch of creaminess, ripe tannins and a delightful freshness make this wine extremely pleasant. Gentle and well-crafted, this young red has a medium finish with an aftertaste of ripe fruit and some spicy remembrances.
|Our personal opinion||
Uncomplicated and gulpable, Crápula Gold 2017 is an excellent table wine.
