El Escocés Volante 'Manga del Brujo'
Manga del Brujo begins as bushvine grapes in the slate studded Jiloca valley at 2,600feet above sea level. The wild mountain herbs amongst the vineyards give rise to the distinctive varietal aromas and garrigue character in the wine. Careful temperature controlled fermentation and the collaboration of New World trained winemakers and local knowledge has produced a full-bodied, distinctive Rhone blend which marries the Old and New World in terms of style but with a slant towards a meatier, more structured wine. The key to this wine is the long time spent working with the fine lees to obtain length and complexity. It's mostly Garnacha -c 75% and c15% Syrah, the balance a number of varieties including Mazuelo. Deep purple with ruby red rim. Pronounced aromas of black fruits, cracked pepper, smoke and toast. Full-bodied with well-balanced tannins. The palate displays dense black fruits, cherries with a long smoky/toasty finish. Mineral and complex. A great wine to drink with classic game dishes but will also work well with rich stews and casseroles.
