Review

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.

My Favourite

I was introduced to this Jumilla wine by my partner who is from the area, it quickly became my go to wine when in the region. A top wine at a very reasonable price

Humilla!

Despite being a young wine, it has character and is quite structured.

Para repetir

Buen vino para cualquier día y ocasión, equilibrado y fácil de beber. Confirma el buen trabajo de la bodega incluso en un vino entry level. A ese precio es difícil pedir más. Su hermano mayor tiene una relación calidad precio aún mejor.

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 ...
