Bodegas El Nido
The Bodegas El Nido winery has managed to extract the maximum expression from their Monastrell grapes of Jumilla in an elegant and flavorful manner which has attracted world wide prestige.
The Bodegas El Nido winery is the Orowines group stronghold in the Jumilla DO of Spain. This winery is located in the Aragona valley with over 44 hectares of grapevines of Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and Cabernet Sauvignon. These are very old grapevines and all of them have a north to northeastern orientation.
With the goal of achieving a pure expression of Monastrell grapes in their wines, the familia Gil and Jorge Ordoñez came together to craft the grand wines of the Bodegas El Nido winery with the help of the brilliant Australian enologist, Chirs Ringland.
The Bodegas El Nido only crafts two wines, Clío and El Nido. These wines are crianza aged between 20 and 24 months in oak barrels and they are both produced in very small quantities. These are intense wines that are incredibly elegant and silky, with a perfect balance. These are very well-structured and persistent wines.
This winery has gained international recognition both from wine critiques as well as the general global community of wine enthusiasts. The infamous wine critique Robert Parker scored the 2007 vintage of El Nido at the astonishing score of 96/100. This winery´s international prestige is so vast that El Nido was one of the wines selected for the famous Japanese “Les Gouttess de Dieu” which can be translated to mean “Drops of God” a New York Times Best Selling Japanese manga series about wine.
