About Juan Gil Blue Label

Juan Gil 18 meses is a red wine from the winery Juna Gil in the D.O Jumilla. The winery is located in Jumilla in the north of the province of Murcia.

Juan Gil 18 meses is produced from Monastrell (60%), Cabernet (30%) and Syrah (10%). The grapes originate from very old vines (70 years old), planted at a height of 700 meters above sea level in sandy, chalky and stony soils which are very poor in nutrients.

This type of soil combined with a large range of temperatures favours a scarce grape production, this is translated into an exceptional concentration of flavours.

For the production of Juan Gil 18 meses, each varietal is produced separately. The maceration and fermentation process is performed in small stainless steel containers and the malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels.

Once finished, the wine rests in French and American oak barrels for 18 months. Lastly, the blend is made and remains in the containers until bottled.
