Product Description
Details

This in the new vintage of Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata (Silver Label), also known as Juan Gil 12 Meses. 

The new vintage of Spanish red wine from Jumilla is a single varietal Monastrell. For the first time, the wine is made from organically certified vineyards.

Made from over 50-year-old vines located in the highest area of the region, the grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed and macerated for 25 days in stainless steel tanks.

After that, this red wine from Jumilla of the Juan Gil winery completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
 
Year after year, Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata 2018 is one of Spain's absolute best values.

Appearance

The wine Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata has a bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This expressive Crianza red wine from Jumilla smells of juicy and jammy red fruit, nuanced by some creamy and spicy remembrances, the result of 12 months in oak. On the background, there is a dash of liquorice, and hints of violets and Mediterranean garrigue.

Palate

Nicely crafted, this Monastrell by Juan Gil is utterly Mediterranean and fresh. Wild berries, some earthy notions, tree bark, exotic spices, menthol, and some vegetal remembrances. This wine has a very good acidity, savoury tannins and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

A wine of remarkable consistency, Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata 2018, aka Juan Gil 12 meses, delivers above expectations.
