The Details

In a Nutshell

Another powerful red from the masters of Jumilla Monastrell!

Tasting Notes

Juan Gil 18 Meses has a pronounced nose of black fruits, spice box - with some balsamic, earthy characters. The palate is complex with more concentrated, rich and ripe black fruit flavours and warm spices, backed by fine tannins and great length. A powerful red capable of further development in bottle.

Production Notes

Produced mainly from low-yielding, old vine, Monastrell - plus additional Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. All planted at around 700m altitude.

Matured for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.

Producer - Bodegas Juan Gil

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.

Further Information

Juan Gil 18 Meses by Bodegas Juan Gil

Juan Gil 18 Meses is a real favourite of ours. A rich and heady wine with plenty of dark fruit, Juan Gil 18 Meses has plenty of the blackcurrant you’d expect from a Jumilla Monsastrell but moreover is layered with warm spices and soft tannins on the finish.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, you could do much worse than a bottle of Juan Gil 18 Meses!
