Details for Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata 2018
Bottle size and vintage
A best-seller, is the best way to sum up this wine; when a wine from a region that's been undervalued for many years wins over so many consumers, you have to pay it some serious attention.
Juan Gil Silver Label is intense in appearance, intense on the nose, and yet again on the palate, but also seductive and elegant in the three phases. Violets, liquorice, fine toasty notes, balsamic hints, spicy touches, but above all else, fruit, tons of juicy ripe fruit, almost as though it were wild blackberry jam. A subtle trace of tobacco leaf and a delicate dash of coffee can be discerned in the background, however nothing overshadows the fruit, there first and foremost. The tannins are firm and somewhat dryish, yet they blend in perfectly overall. Just the right amount of acidity leads to a well-rounded finish, dominated by the Monastrell grape's sweetness and the oak's toasty nuances.

This wine is not for those that are looking for a softer, smoother red wine but it is none the a very, very red from the Jumilla region. Strong, bold and excellently produced.by: Simon (22/11/2019) - Vintage 2017
Fond memories of sitting by the Mar Menor, outside my favourite bar, with a glass of this and a plate of arroz de conejo. Funnily enough, the bar & bodega owner is named Juan too, and this is his personal favourite from the area as well. Smooth and full of flavour, and consistent year after year. Lovely.by: Peter (22/08/2019) - Vintage 2017

Bodegas Juan Gil
The origins of Bodegas Juan Gil date back to 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez built the winery. Today it's the fourth generation at the helm, combining traditional expertise with more contemporary equipment and knowledge. The present-day winery, which began operating in 2002, lies on very poor soils at an altitude of about 800 metres. The climate is extreme, with strong contrasts between day and night temperatures and rain practically non-existent. The stony sand and limestone ...
