Formerly known as Juan Gil 18 Meses, Juan Gil Etiqueta Azul (Blue Label) is produced in the DO Jumilla.
This blended Jumilla red wine is produced from estate-owned vineyards with different kinds of soils. Separately harvested and vinified depending on its plot of origin, the grapes completed alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Malolactic fermentation of this certified vegan wine took plance in new French and American oak barrels. Once completed, this Juan Gil Etiqueta Azul 2019 was aged for 18 months.
Be sure to aerate this Crianza red wine from Bodega Juan Gil at least 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair with hearty dishes.
The red wine Juan Gil Etiqueta Azul is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
Bold and confident, this blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah displays complex notes of toast and spices that slowly evolve into notes of blackcurrants, blueberries and violets, with some creamy nuances. This vegan wine also suggests hints of coffee, Havanna cigars, and remembrances of Mediterranean garrigue.
This wine from Juan Gil is, no doubt, full-bodied and huge. However, it has a fantastic acidity, while also displaying considerable nuance. Ripe tannins and long, complex finish with remembrances of garrigue, dry earth, wild berries.
