Characteristics of Juan Gil Moscatel Seco
Juan Gil Moscatel Seco is a white wine from Jumilla produced by Bodega Juan Gil, a winery that was founded in 1916 by Juan Gil Giménez, great-grandfather of the present generation at the helm of the business.
Juan and Paco Gil González, grandsons of the founder, were responsible for providing the quality of the winery. They have managed to maintain quality and tradition whilst adapting to new technologies. The climate in this area is extreme and dry. It is characterized by low rainfall throughout the year and an average annual temperature of 16ºC. There are great temperature differences between seasons. This wine is a varietal Moscatel de Grano Menudo from their own vineyards planted about 700-850 metres above sea level, on sandy and limestone soil with high insolation, which leads to perfect ripeness. In terms of processing, vinification is carried out in stainless steel tanks for 25 days at a maximum temperature of 15 ° C. After the fermentation, the wine is chilled in reservoirs until bottling.
