Ripe, juicy and forward with aromas of crunchy red berries; cherry, plum and strawberry. Fresh and forward, the palate is fruit focussed with more ripe bramble and plum fruit, a hint of spice and mocha - some weight and complexity with a supple finish.
Producer Details 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. Food Recommendations Perfect with pasta, pizza, red meats and casseroles. Light enough for a lunch wine.
