Review

Juan Gil Yellow Label is one of those wines that vintage after vintage throws hundreds of consumers off course. Without losing any Jumilla essence, this Murcian red is approachable right from its first months in bottle, yet it's fine structure portends a promising future.

Its appearance already shows density, but the reddish rim seems to foretell a definite freshness too. It smells of red and blue flowers, liquorice, pomegranate and cherries. On the palate, after a good aeration, it appears lively and complex, but also well-balanced, with the oak (spices and toasty notes) taking a secondary role; it's like a cherry liqueur sweet, with a cocoa touch, the intense fruit of the Picota cherries and the alcohol undertone of a good Jumilla red. On the one hand intense and fresh, on the other elegantly bitter.

Most acceptable but lower postage charges please

Most acceptable but lower postage charges please. The 2019 is joven and needs more time to mature in my inexperienced humble view.

Bodegas Juan Gil

Bodegas Juan Gil

The origins of Bodegas Juan Gil date back to 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez built the winery.

The present-day winery, which began operating in 2002, lies on very poor soils at an altitude of about 800 metres. The climate is extreme, with strong contrasts between day and night temperatures and rain practically non-existent. The stony sand and limestone ...
