Jumilla Wine

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 »

  • Juan Gil Jumilla Meses "Silver Label" 2016


    The doce meses Juan Gil Jumilla 2016 is a powerful wine, from robe (colour in the glass) of translucent cherry to a nose of ripe cherry pie cooling on the window sill... with a hint of slurp to the sweetness. Entry is powerful; there is cranberry and leather with the overlay of sweet cherry to keep things neat. Finish is long and almond-tannic... Read More

  • Finca Luzon Jumilla 2014


    Always fresh and inviting this is no exception. Juicy red and dark berry fruits mingle in nuanced ways that allow a touch of pepper to flow adding to moderate tannins and always good acidity. 87 points - drink now - Paul Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher

  • Bodegas Casa Castillo El Molar 2014


    Brilliant ruby red. Suave, smoke infected cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by touches of violet and cracked pepper. The palate shows very good focus, with a spicy nuance lifting the gently sweet, energetic black raspberry, cherry cola and lavender pastille flavors. Supple, well knit tannins give firmness to the clinging, floral fini... Read More
