The Monastrell grapes for this wine were selected from 40-year old parcels in the estate vineyards. Here shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock, combined with an arid climate, produce the low yields (1,8 ton per acre) required for wine of this complexity. After harvesting, the deep purple grapes are whole-cluster macerated ”sur lie for 25 days, and then pressed and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Producer The origins of the winery date from 1916 when Juan Gil Gimenez, great grandfather of the present generation, started getting involved in the world of wines and built a winery in the heart of Jumilla. His son, Juan Gil Guerrero, dedicated his whole life to the wine business, but it was the third generation who really consolidated the winery. Juan Gil Gonzalez together with his brother Paco, the founder’s grandsons, forged an image of quality, reliability and efficiency. The present generation continually strives to maintain and improve the Juan Gil standard which is evident through the remarkable wines.
