for this region?

Jumilla is part of the Murcia region in the Levante province of Spain. It benefits from an arid, but gentle inland climate with some assistance from the nearby Mediterranean. Though it can get quite hot, its elevated plateaus give it some relief, and soil rich in limestone some much-needed moisture. Like its neighboring regions of Yecla and Bullas, the predominant grape grown is Monastrell (the same as France’s Mourvèdre). The Monastrell produced in Jumilla is often considered the best.  

The grapes respond well to these growing conditions and produce some well-structured wines. They are often very dark in color, with rich, plummy and dark berry flavors and tend to have balanced earth tones reminiscent of black olives, dark chocolate and espresso with good minerality to finish them out. Some delicate attention to oak barrel aging can give these wines even further depth. They are often Monastrell single varietal releases, but sometimes blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and/or Read more »

  • Crapula Monastrell Jumilla Spain 2013


    Had this with dinner at Mercat Bistro last week. Stewed Fruits, Baking Spices, Minerals, and Earth. Full round in the mouth, balanced Tannins and Acidity, with a long finish of more dark fruit, cocoa, and earth. Really quite lovely. Did not jot down how much it was, think it was very reasonable for a restaurant wine. Read More

  • RCKR-That CBV is a solid QPR. Of the handful of Jumilla Region wines with have tried over the years none have wowed us. Yesterday we started with the Bedrock Compagni Portis-(my wife drank most of it as I sipped on some scotch). This one was way more acidic and very citrusy compared to the previous bottle. Crisp, tangy with a long finish. Not ba... Read More

  • Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla 2012


    This is as good a "low key" wine as there is. There a little red berry fruit, a little whisp of smoke, coffee and a little mocha. The mid-palate is fleshy with out a lot of definition but pleasing none-the-less. The finish sees modest tannins matched with equal acidity. Drink now. Paul 89 points Read More

  • Our first really warm day here this year.  Had some friends over for bbq ... ... "Las Graves" JumillaThe CBV was uplifting, a great mood changer - the Jumilla was less than I'd hoped for (I like Mourvedre from Jumillia) but with the heat and wine....well, we were feeling fine and full.  Good day and that's all that matters. &nbs Read More
