Details

A surprising Spanish dry white wine made from Moscatel de Grano Menudo (the noblest member of the family of the Muscat grapes, known in French as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains), Juan Gil Blanco is produced in the DO Jumilla

Crafted by the Juan Gil winery, known for its Monastrell wines, this suprisingly sharp white wine comes from vines grown at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks for 30 days, Juan Gil Blanco 2018 was aged for some weeks before its bottling.

A great value, this white wine from Jumilla should be enjoyed over the next two years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Juan Gil Blanco has a clean, bright yellow colour with greenish tinges.

Nose

Rewardingly honest and straightforward, Juan Gil Moscatel Seco smells of of peaches and apricots, citrus and pineapple. On the background, this Muscat white wine suggests a note of aromatic herbs and dry earth.

Palate

Dry, intense and crisp, this white wine by Juan Gil is reminiscent of lime, white flowers and bone fruit. Well-balanced and crystalline, this Jumilla white wine has a very good acidity and an exceptionally refreshing finish.

Our personal opinion

This Juan Gil Blanco 2018 is one of the best wines to pair with fish rice dishes.

    A nice take on Moscatel. Super dry and edgy, but not austere. Excellent with tapas and shrimp.
