2019 Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Montsant OWC 3L
Winemaker Notes: Juan Gil Silver Label is made with 100% Monastrell (Mourvedre) grapes from vines that are 40 years old, planted in poor chalky and rocky limestone soils, that produce low yields of about 1 ton per acre. Bunches are hand-picked and then macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months aging. The wine shows rich, bold aromas and flavors of dark fruits and spices, complemented by toasty oak and balanced acidity.
Dry-farmed, no pesticides or herbicides, hand-harvested, Vegan.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - " The 2019 Juan Gil (silver label) was produced with Monastrell grapes from their own old, non-irrigated vines fermented in stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels for around 12 months. It has 15% alcohol and a pH of 3.67, but somehow the wine does not come through as overripe; they eliminate all the raisins with their new optical sorting machine and that makes very clean wines and has increased the precision. They also reduced the toast of their barrels and that increases the integration of the oak with the fruit. Varietal, juicy, soft and very drinkable."
