Characteristics Juan Gil Rosado
Juan Gil Rosado is a barrel-aged rosé wine made by Juan Gil with the Syrah and Tempranillo varieties in the D.O. Jumilla (Murcia).
Juan Gil is the product of four generations of work that began in 1916 when Juan Gil Jiménez set up a small winery in the centre of Jumilla (Murcia). Then his son Juan Gil Guerrero and his grandsons Juan and Paco Gil González carried on the legacy and turned it into a leading producer of the native Monastrell variety.
Juan Gil Rosado comes from the Finca de Juan Gil. The vineyards lie 700 metres above sea level and are planted on loamy-sandy and limestone soil that is very poor in nutrients. Although these vines are close to the Mediterranean Sea, they enjoy a continental climate, with abrupt temperature changes between day and night, which results in a small and highly concentrated grape.
In the winery, the Juan Gil Rosado grapes are fermented in concrete tanks at a controlled temperature below 18ºC. Once the process is finished, the wine spends several months in French oak barrels until bottling.
Recently, rosé wines from Jumilla have enjoyed great international success. An example of these wines is this Juan Gil Rosado, a fresh wine with the perfect body to enjoy all year round.
