The bodega owns over 500 hectares of vineyards on the slopes of the Penarubia mountain, the highest part of Jumilla. The poor stony soils of the area are noted for yielding richly flavoured, concentrated Monastrell; Juan Gil also has access to further fruit from 30 to 50 year old vines.
Grapes are sourced from vineyards at around 700 metres altitude, around La Aragona. These vineyards surround the cellar, which is 10 km to the northeast of Jumilla. The Monastrell vines have an average age of 25 years. Temperature controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel.
Drink now and over the next 2 years.
From a producer with 100 years of wine heritage, the Paco Mulero wines are produced from vines cultivated in the north-eastern part of Jumilla - on high slopes with poor chalky, sandy soils. Particularly of note are those made from old, low-yielding Monastrell bush vines.
Spot on with a proper Burger, fries, salad and the accompaniments, or any BBQ style grilled meats. Will also work with a vegetable and tomato ratatouille and salad.
Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Appealing aromas of dark red cherry and ripe plum. A bright, fruit-forward style with plush bramble, plum and mocha characters, wrapped up in smooth, rounded tannins.
