Goru El Blanco
An aromatic white wine with Moscatel to the fore backed by the weightier character of Chardonnay.
The grapes are harvested at night, once they have reached optimum ripeness, enhancing thus an intense aroma. Low- temperature fermentation is carried out to preserve the individual aromas of each variety.
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
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.
