The Bluegray is the wine of the Juan Gil family from the Priorat, made from 40% Garnacha (Grenache), 30% Cariñena (Carignan), 20% Syrah and 10% Merlot which has matured for 6 months in new French oak. The vineyard is planted on high-altitude terraces of blue slate and quartz soils known as llicorella. Very inhospitable location between pine trees and olive trees. Everything here has to be done by hand and the vines have very low yields. Hand-picked and fermented separately in small barrels for 10 days at temperatures below 28oC and then aged separately in French oak barrels for 6 months and finally blended in the desired proportion

The Juan Gil Bluegray is dark ruby ​​red and alive with aromas of blackberries and cherries and delicate accents of nutmeg and star anise in the nose. The wine is very elegant with well-integrated tannins with dried Mediterranean herbs such as thyme with a persistent aftertaste.

This is a delicious wine with excellent price/quality that Juan Gil wines are known for. This is a delicious wine with grilled and roasted red meat, game, cold cuts, aged cheeses, rice and pasta with flavored sauces, hearty winter dishes.
