Crafted by the respected Juan Gil winery in the Jumilla DO, the grapes come from more than 40-year-old vines grown at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level. Meticulously handpicked and vinified in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 25ºC, after finishing malolactic fermentation, wine was aged for 4 months into French and American oak barrels.
"This juicy and vibrant, summer-berry and wild-cherry nose leads to a very plush and deep-set palate with a sleek, juicy and attractive feel. So vibrant. Drink now."
"Busy, warm, open, luxurious, hedonistic, soft and more: this is Juan Gill yellow label in a nutshell. There are cherries and chocolates, baked blackcurrant, raisin, and licorice, with chalky tannins. Rustic and frankly a touch rambunctious, it is a party red par excellence best paired with meatball appetizers. Ready to drink."
20 under $20 for September 2016 "...Speaking of stuffing, there is a ton of it in the 2015 Monastrell from Juan Gil, a wine that manages to be fruity, big and oaky while retaining a great level of drinkability. Clearly, mourvedre (monastrell, in Spanish) finds a very peculiar balance on the sunny slopes of southern Spain."
Best Value "Full-bodied, juicy, savoury and delicious Spanish red wine offering great value. Loaded with dark wild blackberries, purple plums and forest-deep cherries and cedar. Decant this wine 1-2 hours for maximum pleasure. Pair with veal chops."
"Full of spicy ripe blackberry and plum fruit, delicate vanilla and sweet cedar spice. Layers of lush spiced plum and sweet black cherry fruit with a distinctly dry and earthy undercurrent."
"Gloriously expressive aromas of blueberries and warm oak spice. The palate is a veritable basket of bold bramble fruit. Great concentration here. Powerful yet carefully restrained with fine grained tannins. Well-made style."
"This luxurious red boasts a sumptuous nose of blackberry, damson and smoke. The palate is well balanced with ripe tannins and a crisp seam of acidity. A REMARKABLE VALUE!"
