The Gil family have been major producers in Jumilla since the early 20th century but took a major step forward when Miguel Gil, great-grandson of the company's founder, built a new bodega in time for the 2003 vintage. Situated on the slopes of the Penarubia mountain, the highest part of Jumilla with poor stony soils noted for its richly flavoured, concentrated Monastrell, the bodega owns over 500 hectares of vineyards and has access to further fruit from 30 to 50 year old vines. Bodegas Juan Gil is dedicated to producing powerful yet approachable and modern wines, mainly based on Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) which is grown on about 85% of the vineyard - other varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Grapes used to make this wine are found in vineyards around 700 metres in altitude around La Aragona. These vineyards surround the cellar, which is 10 km to the northeast of Jumilla.The Monastrell vines have an average age of 25 years. The grapes are hand harvested in the third week of October.

Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel.

Perfect with pasta, pizza, red meats and casseroles. Light enough for a lunch wine.
