Tasting Notes

Deep cherry red in colour. A ripe, open nose of plums and blackberries, with sweet herbs. Warm and spicy on the palate with crunchy black fruit and a touch of pepper - all backed by sweet, ripe, and supple tannins.

Producer details

Bodegas Juan Gil, with a century of wine-growing history in the harsh climate of the Jumilla region, use some of their Monastrell and Syrah fruit from vineyards on the slopes of the Penarubia mountain to produce some wine solely for us. These grapes, from 20 to 30 year old vines in Jumilla, produce wines with plenty of fruit and character.

In the vineyard

Bodegas Juan Gil own about 400 hectares of vineyards between 700 and 850 metres above sea level. The grapes for this wine are sourced from the northeast of Jumilla. Monastrell is the main varietal grown, but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Monastrell vineyards are planted on chalky soils, and the Shiraz vineyards on sandy soils. The Shiraz grapes were picked during the 1st two weeks of September, and Monastrell during the last two weeks of the same month.

In the winery

Vinification is carried out at the winery in the heart of the Juan Gil vineyard area. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, temperature controlled, and the juice maintains contact with the skins during this process.

Food Recommendations

Rich pasta dishes with salami or ham, or a premium, meat-rich, lasagna with layers of meatballs and slices of pepperami in the mix!
