Even the vuvuzelas didn’t drown out the cheers of the Spanish fans, crowded around televisions around the world. I prepared in advance, with this bottle of Gotim Bru on hand. Once the game was won, the cork was popped and this big red – like millions of footie fans – was able to breathe.Gotim Bru is a modern styled blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Merlot, aged for 10 months in French and American oak. The hue is dark garnet with an orange glint, and first sniff shows wood, book, spice and red currants. On the palate, this big red has structured yet soft tannins, laced with layers of ripe red currants, sweet cherries, jammy bright red fruit, tobacco, copper and spice. A wee nip of heat hints to the 14% alcohol. Stylish showy flowers with rustic, grounded roots. Tomato braised pork shank or grilled leg of lamb would make a happy partner.Costers del Segre is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) in the Catalonia region. Tempranillo is known locally here as Ull de Llebre.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)Red WineSpainWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.
