Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell "Honora Vera Organic" Jumilla 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine produced under organic regulations established in the European Union norm as well as in the U.S. -NOP certification. The vines are planted on chalky soils without irrigation and very low yields, with an annual rainfall below 300 mm, there is no room for chemical products or synthetic pesticides in our daily work. It exhibits great aromatic complexity, richness, and length. This mouth-filling Monastrell over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 4 years.
