Goru 38 Barrels

This wine is as outstanding as the label and has a limited production and availability. Selected Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have 20-30 days maceration and 10 months in French and American oak.

Ego Bodegas, now a decade old, is a boutique winery driven by three concepts – Ego, Talento, Infinito – which are: Ego, the concept of the self; Talento, the capacity for the performance or execution of an occupation; Infinito, the limitless power of the dream.

The intriguing Gorú image is that of a local character who lived as a hermit.

About the Producer

Bodegas Ego

Ego Bodegas has 25ha of vineyards including varieties such as Tempranillo and Syrah, but the main focus is on the local native variety Monastrell – many of these vines are about 50 years old. They are situated in a special location within the region of Jumilla, one of the driest wine areas of Spain. The climate means the grapes grow as small bunches with a good concentration of sugar, excellent acidity and thicker skins.

While the surroundings are rural and rustic, the winery and its technology are both modern and meticulously managed.
