Only 0 per customer!

Limited stock
Densely coloured wine with a high impact impressive nose. Spice, cedar, toast and chocolate are layered with blackberry and plum. The palate has lots of juicy ripe plum, and a textural earthy chocolate sensation. Tannins build to the finish. A complex wine with great balance, concentration and length. The Gil family have been major 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 about 400 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 (aka Mourvedre) which is grown on about 85% of the vineyard - other varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

In the vineyard
The Monastrell grapes for this wine come from 40-year old parcels of estate vineyards. Shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock, combined with an arid climate, produce the low yields (1,8 ton per acre) required for wine of this complexity.
