Fresh cherry, cranberry and red plum characters on the nose. The palate has a creamy weight, with stone fruit and juicy redcurrant acidity balancing lightly nutty, toasty hints from the barely perceptible oak. This adds texture and weight more than flavour to the palate. It has an appealing orange peel and lightly savoury note on the finish.

Producer Information

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. Situated on the slopes of the Penarubia mountain, the highest part of Jumilla with poor stony soils noted for its richly flavoured, concentrated Monastrell, the bodega owns over 500 hectares of vineyards and has access to further fruit from 30 to 50 year old vines. Bodegas Juan Gil is dedicated to producing powerful yet approachable and modern wines, mainly based on Monastrell, which is grown on 85% of the vineyard - other varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
