Bodegas El Nido

Bodegas El Nido is a collaborative wine brand created by Australian enologist Chris Ringland, Spanish wine importer Jorge Ordonez and the Gil Vera winemaking family (of Bodegas Juan Gil). The production is based in the Valle de la Aragon within the Murcia district of Spain’s Jumilla region. The two wines produced, El Nido and Clio, mirror each other in grape composition. Clio is composed of 70% Monastrelll and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, while El Nido is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Monastrell. The wines are fruit-forward, powerful and highly concentrated and have a devoted following among enthusiasts for New World styles of Spanish wine.

  • Bodegas El Nido Red Blend Jumilla Clio 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Surprisingly tannic at this age. Can stay in the bottle for a few more years, but like other reviewers 3 hours or more in the decanter releases some hidden treasures. If you are impatient do not hesitate to decant the wine, then shake it as hard as you can without spilling it out of the decanter. This approach while viewed by some as crude yi... Read More

Personally I enjoy bot... Read More

    The nose opens with a delightful medley of floral, herbal, and fruity aromas. The palate is immediately spicy, rich and wide. A variety of herbs punctuates a flavor combo of coffee and cassis, with licorice, dark chocolate and ripe cranberry emerging to enrich the savory brew. Drinks well for 24 hours, integrating and evolving constantly, but... Read More
