In a Nutshell
Ripe, opulent, classic southern Spanish Monastrell from Juan Gil's organic vineyards
Complex nose of ripe plums and rich red fruit, combined with liquorice and fig characters. On the palate the wine is generous, rich and spicy - weighty with a good concentration of red and black fruit flavours, fine tannins, and fresh acidity on the finish.
The grapes are handpicked, and the maceration lasted 15 days, with temperature maintained below 28 degrees. The wine was macerated with the skins before being deposited in stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation took place.
Bodegas Juan Gil
The Gil family have been producers in Jumilla since the early 20th century but took a major step forward when Miguel Gil, great-grandson of the company’s founder, built a new bodega in time for the 2003 vintage.
