Juan Gil Yellow Label Organic Monastrell 2022Regular price £13.95
The nose has rich plum and blackcurrant pastille characters, with delicate vanilla, spice and cedars. The palate is ripe, smooth and opulent with layers of pure blackcurrant, juicy blackberry, lush spicy plum and cherry fruit, minerality and complex, fine tannins on the finish.
For those of you who remember we used to stock Juan Gil a few years ago, the winery has definitely moved towards a fresher style, but this is still very much an unapologetic rich and velvety red wine though which we are sure you will love.
The Gil family have been major wine producers in Jumilla since the early 20th Century. Bodegas Juan Gil is dedicated to producing powerful, yet approachable and modern wines, mainly based on Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) which is grown on about 80% of the vineyard.
The winery has invested heavily in its Organic and Sustainability programmes in recent years.
