Wine Spectator 93
A bold, expressive red, loaded with toast and smoke aromas and flavors alongside raspberry tart, black plum reduction, rich earth and ground coffee.

Robert Parker 93
A similar blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vintage marked by torrential rains caused by the DANA storm in September that delivered 200+liters of rain. It fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured in French and American oak barrels for 23 months. It's slightly lower in alcohol than the 2018, 15.5%. I think the Cabernet was more noticeable here and it added a certain freshness to the wine, which, coupled with a little less alcohol, made the wine come through as a little cooler and more continental. All within the Chris Ringland style, of course... Drinking Window: 2022 2028

TASTING NOTES
The 2019 vintage of Clio exhibits an expressive nose with pain grille, brier, minerality, blueberry and blackberry fruit. On the palate is a plush, opulent wine with great density, savory flavors and a long finish.

VINEYARDS
Clio is made from parcels of very old, very low-yield Monastrell (79 acres) and Cabernet Sauvignon (29 acres) vineyards located approximately 2,300 feet in elevation. Head-pruned bush vines are planted in poor, rocky limestone and sand soils in a hot, dry climate that encourages optimal ripening of concentrated and complex berries.

About Bodegas El Nido Winery
The first steps of this winery began to bear fruit in late 2001 as a result of the partnership between the Gil family and Chris Ringland, one of Australia's best winemakers.
The first harvest sold was the 2002 vintage under the brands of El Nido and Clio.
In the 2009 campaign, we made the first harvest of Corteo, supplementing the current range of wines from Bodegas El Nido
The winery is placed in the Valley of the Aragona, 10 kilometers north of the town of Jumilla, in the "top boundary", so named because it is the highest altitude in the municipality.
