Pedrera Juan Gil Monastrell

Spain, Jumilla

(1 customer review)

The whacky label belies a seriously great value for money red. From Spain’s “deep south” this savoury, strawberry jam red wine has plenty of briary fruits and an open, smooth, juicy palate and texture. Made from the Monastrell grape (aka Mourvèdre in the Southern Rhône).”

The Gil family have been major producers in Jumilla since the early 20th century; Miguel Gil, great-grandson of the company's founder, ushered in a new era of winemaking by building the modern bodega in time for the 2003 vintage. Bodegas Juan Gil is dedicated to producing powerful yet approachable and modern wines, mainly based on the Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre) grape - which 85% of the vineyard is dedicated to.

    (verified owner):

    Fresh and forward, the palate is fruit focused with more ripe bramble and plum fruit; juicy with aromas of crunchy red berries and strawberry, a hint of spice and mocha – some weight and complexity with a supple finish.
