RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Clio was produced with 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and despite the warm and dry year, it has a little less alcohol than the 2016. It fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured French and American oak barrels, where it also underwent malolactic and 23 months of élevage. Even this shows nice integration of the oak; Miguel Gil told me the wine from 2017 was so powerful and concentrated that it absorbed the oak like never before. And it's true that both wines from 2017 feel a lot less oaky and more balanced, and they have all the ingredients for a long time in bottle. There are some ashy and smoky undertones and a full-bodied palate with fine tannins a chalky texture and some sweet spices, still young and with a long life ahead of it in bottle. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2019.

Bodegas El Nido, Spain
The Bodegas El Nido project is the result of the collaboration of the Gil Family and Chris Ringland (one of the best Australian enologists and author of Clio and El Nido) and others.

The winery is located in the Valle de La Aragona, inside the Murcia district of Jumilla and surrounding area. The vineyards are 76.8 acres of very old vaso trained Monatrell vines oriented northeast, and 28.8 acres of 30 year old Cabernet Sauvignon planted on smooth hills looking north.

Monastrell vines are planted in a foot deep layer of chalky stones over substrat a of sandy soil. Cabernet vines are planted in vineyards with chalky, stony soil over a layer of sandy soil with clay.

Famous for the robust and earthy, black-fruit dominated, Monastrell (known as Mourvedre in France), Jumilla is an arid and hot region in southeastern Spain. Its vine yields tend to be torturously low but this can create wines of exceptional intensity and flavor. Quality combined with accessible price points give the region great recognition on international markets far and wide.

The reds from Jumilla are heady and spicy, packed with fruit and show aromas of dried licorice and herbs. If you like Syrah, Grenache or Pinot noir, a red wine from Jumilla would be a perfect next choice!

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
