El Campeador Reserva 2008
Our champion Big Red is back with the same mighty punch but in a more elegant, oaky style
Tim Atkin wrote: "Jumilla gets my vote as the most underrated wine region in Europe. This large region has some of the oldest and most concentrated Monastrell in Spain, producing full bodied reds that are just as good as most Bandols, and sell at half the price" (The Observer). Its vineyards, olive groves and orchards stretch over a rolling plateau, surrounded by mountains that provide a dramatic backdrop.If you're already a fan of El Campeador, you're sure to love this silky smooth Reserva edition, patiently matured for two years in French and American oak barrels. The wine has been named after local hero El Cid - also known as El Campeador or "the champion". Enjoy with grilled lamb chops, spaghetti with meatballs or a hearty beef stew.
