  • Production Notes
  • Producer
  • Delivery Information

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 required for wine of this complexity. After harvesting, the grapes are macerated for 25 days, and then pressed and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

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 Pe�arrubia 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.

Jumilla - who knew?

I came across this many years ago @ TGWS. Use to Rioja and Navarra, Jumilla was a new wine region for me. Juan Gil Silver label is intense in colour and aroma. It has lots of fruit. Definitely one of my go to wines. Try with dishes that are tomatoey like bolognese.
