Crazy Grapes 2018, 75cl
In order to improve something, we must go back to the start, it is the cycle of life....
The 2nd vintage of the much loved, Finca Bacara Crazy Grapes. Finca Bacara was established in 2015 when young, wine-loving couple, Ioana and Santos, launched a project setting out a positive message about life, nature and wine, with an emphasis on price and quality.
Crazy Grapes tells a story based on human being and life itself through illustration and with a lot of imagination. An elaboration of how the grape variety Monastrell; (known outside of spain as Mourvèdre) thrives in the DOP of Jumilla. The D.O.P. of Jumilla is located in the southeast of spain, characterised by its huge plains and valleys.
Cherry red and clean with bright colours fitting of his youth. Floral, attractive aromas on the nose. With hints of ripe fruit and a balsamic background - gained from 3 months in American oak. On the palate it is medium bodied , easy going and balanced, with correct acidity, a smooth finish and persistence.
Ideal for salads, red meat, lamb and fish. Paella, cured cheese.
"Dark fruit aromas on the nose carry an earthy undertone, while this Monastrell is black as midnight in hue. On the palate, it feels full, chewy and dense, but lively enough to be enjoyable. Typical of Jumilla, it tastes of clove and chocolate notes resting heavily on a plump finish."
