Review

The Paraje Las Chozas wine is the initial red from Bruma del Estrecho de Marín, an energising project which is firmly committed to the Monastrell grape and taking the DO Jumilla's wines towards a hitherto unrevealed horizon: fresh and complex reds which don't hide their Mediterranean soul but pass elegantly through the palate.

The wines made by this winery are defined by the terroir's influence. In the case of the Paraje Las Chozas, the grapes (Monastrell) come from ungrafted vineyards aged between 35 and 50 years old, with old roots that penetrate the stony, chalky and sandy soils in order to extract all the ground's possible nuances; the climate provides a wide range of temperatures which enables the attainment of structured wines but with pleasant tannicity (Tobarra is located to the north of the denomination), and the vineyard's altitude (650 m) adds a certain continental feel to the Mediterranean climate; there's little rain and the yields are fairly limited.

The result: a wine in a modern style and very easy to appreciate, which benefits from the freshness and elegance conferred by the sandy soils. Its three months of ageing in 5,000-litre oak vats doesn't put any interference in the way of the fruit and allows the aromas of strawberry toffees and blue flowers to be detected openly on the nose. Noticed on the palate are its firm but pleasant tannins, and a complexity not often found in a young wine; liquorice, pepper, cherries, orange peel... simply irresistible and delightful.

Bruma del Estrecho de Marín

Bruma del Estrecho de Marín is the project resulting from the combined aspirations of Elena Pacheco (oenologist and viticultural expert) and Isio Ramos (wine distributor). Elena has spent most of her life in Jumilla, surrounded by the family vineyards and Isio complements Elena's expertise with his constant determination and active participation, and a huge passion for wine. After years of collaborating on other projects, the idea came up to join forces and produce fine wi...
