Juan Gil Yellow Label Monastrell Jumilla DOP

2017

In a Nutshell

Classic Jumilla Monastrell from the region's most famous producer.

Tasting Notes

The nose has rich plum and blackcurrant characters with delicate vanilla spice and a touch of cedar. The palate is smooth and opulent with layers of pure blackcurrant, juicy blackberry, lush spicy plum and cherry fruit, minerality and complex fine tannins on the finish.

Production Notes

Grapes come from 40 year old bush vines. Vineyards are 700 m above sea level to the north east of Jumilla, on sandy, chalky, rocky soil. The grapes were hand-harvested. Fermented in stainless steel. Aged in French and American oak for around 4 months.
