2021 Bodegas El Nido Nido
The El Nido from the bodega of the same name is one of the top 25 best wines in Spain. Top wine from Juan Gill's domain. On average, only 5,000 bottles of El Nido are made, so this is scarce, unique and incomparable. Absolute winner vinified by grandmaster Chris Ringland (good for 100/100 at Parker).
The El Nido was produced with a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Monastrell fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and aged for 23 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels; it is a ripe, powerful and intoxicating Mediterranean red with generous oak produced in a very specific style. This is intoxicating and ripe, super powerful with concentration and punch, but balanced. Just like with the Clio, the integration of the oak is, in a word, fantastic. This has all the ingredients and balance to develop beautifully and long-lasting in the bottle. It has to be one of the best vintages for El Nido. On average, only 5,000 bottles of El Nido are made, so this is scarce, unique and incomparable. Very limited

Miguel Gil, recorded owner of the top domain Juan Gil, chose quality over quantity in Jumila, undiscovered for years, out of respect and love for his region (and great wine!) For the mini project of Bodegas El Nido, he calls on the Australian top winemaker Chris Ringland (at Parker good for 100/100…) 2 wines are made at this small Bodega: Clio & El Nido. The 16 ha Monastrell followed of 60 years old perched on terraces oriented northeast. Furthermore, 25 years ago, 12 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon were planted on the hills with an oblique north in the same region. Today, these unique top quality mature grapes, magnificently bred by the Gil-Ringland duo, offer the most aristocratic wines in Spain.
The entire international wine press is unanimous in its assessment of the El Nido and Clio wines. Unprecedentedly good and fitting to the top of Spanish wines. In absolute terms, the El Nido and the Clio are not cheap, but in relative terms (eg compared to top Bordeaux) the Clio and Nido cost a fraction and therefore have an unprecedented good price / quality. In our beautiful selection of wines, the El Nido and Clio should not be missing in the opinion of Miquel and Juan Gil.
