Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This youthful wine is deep ruby purple colour with aromas of fresh berry tarts,plums, field berries, floral and sweet spices. Medium(+) cleansing acidity. Fresh and pretty like a Spring morning. Great everyday value at $14. Perfect pork wine.
Tasted: January 2016
This Spanish red wine is made from 100% Monastrell grapes grown on low bush vines planted in poor limestone soils. There are low yields due to these impoverished soils and extreme weather. Sweet tannins. The Spanish winery of Juan Gil was established in 1916 in the region of Jumilla, known for its red wines made from the Monastrell grape, which is called Mourvèdre in France. - Community Wine Reviews
