Details for Juan Gil Etiqueta Plata 2018
Bottle size and vintage
A best-seller, is the best way to sum up this wine; when a wine from a region that's been undervalued for many years wins over so many consumers, you have to pay it some serious attention.
Juan Gil Silver Label is intense in appearance, intense on the nose, and yet again on the palate, but also seductive and elegant in the three phases. Violets, liquorice, fine toasty notes, balsamic hints, spicy touches, but above all else, fruit, tons of juicy ripe fruit, almost as though it were wild blackberry jam. A subtle trace of tobacco leaf and a delicate dash of coffee can be discerned in the background, however nothing overshadows the fruit, there first and foremost. The tannins are firm and somewhat dryish, yet they blend in perfectly overall. Just the right amount of acidity leads to a well-rounded finish, dominated by the Monastrell grape's sweetness and the oak's toasty nuances.
