85% Monastrell, 15% Shiraz
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, temperature controlled, and the juice maintains contact with the skins during this 10-day process.
Drink during the next 12 months
Bodegas Juan Gil own over 500 hectares of vineyards, between 700 and 850 metres altitude, in the northwest of Jumilla: old bush vine Monastrell planted in chalky soils, and Shiraz grown in sandy soils on younger, trellised vines. Vinification is carried out at the winery in the heart of the Juan Gil vineyard area.
This is lovely to drink on its own, but plenty of body to work well with rich pasta dishes. Also great accompaniment to cured meats such us ham and salami.
