Winemaker Notes

100% Monastrell from 45 year old vines.  Deep violet. Aromas of blackcurrant, black tea, black berry, smoke. Very chewy and rich with good framing tannins and minerality.
 

"A serious effort, the 2004 Juan Gil is fashioned from 45-year-old Mourvedre vines and is aged for 12 months in American and French oak. This rich, full-bodied, inky/purple-tinged cuvee exhibits aromas of scorched earth, blueberries, licorice, and pepper, a savory, layered texture, and remarkable opulence for a Mourvedre. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."  The Wine Advocate

Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil, Spain
Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Winery Video

Bodegas Juan Gil was founded in 1916 by Juan Gil Gimenez. Over five generations, the winery has been consolidated and improved, applying technological advancements to the traditional knowledge passed down through the years. Jumilla, along the southern Mediterranean, is the kingdom of Monastrell; the vines are between 40 and 100 years old with very low yields (approximately. 2,500 kg/ha) planted in chalky, stony, poor soils. The vineyards, which are located at an altitude of 2,000 feet, are all dry farmed without the use of pesticides or herbicides and are harvested by hand.

Jumilla is a region with an extreme climate of hot, dry summers followed by long cold winters. The diurnal temperature shift is great and little to no rain falls during the growing season. These harsh conditions lead to wines with great structure and intense color and aromas.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
