Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Juan Gil 2003

Member Review by kybecca:

An outstanding Monastrell from Jumilla. Dry farmed and produced from 50+ year old vines. Fans of rich Cabernet Sauvignon should think about buying this wine. kybecca.com

Juan Gil winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, in the north hillside De Cerezo which belongs to the property. This mountain, which is covered in trees, shelters the back of the installations, the rest is surrounded by vineyards. In this shady place, the cellar is protected from the heat of the area. The uneven land is also adapted to the needs in order to prevent damaging the good quality of the grapes. The installations are designed by the winery staff, trying to combine the most modern technologies with the traditional and familiar winemaking processes. They are provided with authomatic systems which can obtain all the information to have traceability of the whole bottling process -not only elaboration but also internal changes- from the vineyards to the customers. The processing capacity of the winery is three and a half million kg of grapes. All the buldings are air-conditioned. The aging cellar has a capacity of 3000 oak casks. The laboratory equipment is ready to carry out all the necessary quality controls to guarantee the consumers`health. Read less

Excellent value, and a favorite among a group who were not Spanish wine fans.

I love Spanish wines anyway, but this one is really special, full of spice and a really unique flavor that starts out with a kick and ends really smoothly and nice, not so tart as other Spanish reds I've had. Definitely worth a try because it has really interesting flavor.
