    Winemaker Notes

    Garnet-purple with a violet rim. The aroma shows complex and powerful, ripe fruit notes, spices, cocoa, blackberry, plum, vanilla notes, and toasted notes from new oak. In the mouth, the wine is smooth and gentle with mature tannins, sweetness, and a round, polished, long finish.

    Bodegas Luzon, Jumilla, Spain
    Image of winery
    The estate was founded by the Gil family in 1916. For almost a century now they have strived to create wines that not only reflect the terroir of Jumilla but have an intense expression of the fruit and represent a good value in the market. They have achieved this goal through meticulous vineyard management and by adopting the latest technologies of winemaking available. The winery is located west of the town of Jumilla.

    The grapes are sourced from the family-owned estate of 216 acres. The estate is surrounded by small mountains, 60 miles from the Mediterranean Sea. The vineyards are at the altitude of 1,500-2,100 ft. The soils are a combination of sand and chalk covered with chalky gravel and stones. Jumilla has a continental climate due to the high altitude of the region, despite the proximity of the Mediterranean Sea; there are large fluctuations in temperature from day to night during the growing season and cold winters. Rainfall is scant.

    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.
