Winemaker Notes

Jumilla is an exciting new wine-making area in Spain. This wine is made from a combination of the most widely planted local grape variety called Monastrell (50%); barrel aged Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Shiraz (30%). Monastrell is a sexy grape that originated in the South of France but has flourished in this region of Spain, South East of Madrid, due to the warm weather that fosters the late ripening period of this particular varietal. 2003 was hot as hell in Jumilla, the hottest on record in fact. The harvest was moved up by 15 days to accommodate for the weather, also breaking records. The result is a wonderfully ripe, high quality wine that proudly represents this emerging growing area in Spain. The Monastrell grape brings raspberry, loganberry and mulberry flavors to the palate while the Shiraz carries white pepper notes. The Cabernet provides the backbone to the wine with a soft, round mouth feel and a sweet mid-palate.

Mad Dogs & Englishmen, Spain
Mad Dogs & Englishmen Winery Image
Jumilla is an up-and-coming Spanish appellation southeast of Madrid. The vineyards and cellar are close to the regional park "El Carche" set in a beautiful natural surrounding. Jumilla is an area that produces several varieties with a specialization in Monastrell. A substantial investment in Jumilla area vineyards over the past 10 years, along with modern viticultural techniques, have made it one of the most exciting new wine making regions in Spain.

Winemaker William Long, successfully partnered with Guy Anderson, and this new collaboration promises to bring the best of Spanish wines to the forefront in America. William is an Englishman that has been making wine in Spain for 10 years. The climate is very different in Spain compared to England and when discussing this vintage he quoted the great Noel Coward saying: "it's so hot you need to be either mad or an Englishman to work here." For the label, William selected a friendly face from his boyhood in England with the picture of a Jack Russell terrier.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, 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.

Most planted and respected 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.
