JUAN GIL WINES
JUAN GIL WINES have character. Grapes come from old vines over 40 years old, planted at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level on sandy, chalky, stony soil.
The climate is extremely dry, with virtually no rainfall throughout the year, and a long cold winter. Day-to-night temperature fluctuation is in the range of 25°C .
The harvest is done manually. The grape is macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. After malolactic fermentation and ageing in French oak, it is remained in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
Juan Gil winery is built in 1916 in Jumilla, Murcia, SPAIN. It has a long history of producing excellent wines, in particularly, the very expressive Monastrell (Mourvedre) grape varietal, which is a typical variety of Jumilla.
The red wines are either aged in French and/or American oak barrels for 4, 12 or 18 months. The white wine is produced from Moscatel grape varietal.
We recommend moderate consumption of wine as part of the Mediterranean diet.
NOTE: Contains sulphites. Consumption of wine during childhood, pregnancy and in case of any sulphite allergy may cause serious damage to health.
