2021 Juan Gil Blanco
Juan Gil, a family business founded in 1916 in the center of the city of Jumilla, is the champion of the map of Jumilia as a (top) wine region and has led several winemakers to stand up for the prestige/potential of the wines of the area and qualities of the Moscatel and Monastrell grape. True to its origins, this winery has seamlessly merged tradition and news technology with respect for the environment. Juan Gill is also the creator of the famous Clio and the world famous El Nido.
The Juan Gil Blanco is the white wine from the Juan Gil series (yellow, silver and blue label). It is a dry wine made from Moscatel/Muscat grapes coming from an elevated vineyard (700 meters) in the valley of La Aragona, north of Jumilla, with chalky soils, a dry climate and many hours of sun that form a microclimate that is perfect is for this variety. Due to the altitude, the differences between day and night are large, which ensures elegance and good acidity. In the glass, the Juan Gil Moscatel has a light straw yellow color with a green tinge. In the nose aromas of fresh melon, peach and kiwi supplemented with jasmine and white pepper. Juicy, tightly wrapped pome fruit and honey aromas on the palate make this very pleasant wine juicy, refreshing with a long, intensely spicy finish.
This is a delicious wine with chicken, fish, shellfish, pasta salad and with Thai food and a great companion to the white gold - the Asparagus
