"The 2016 Juan Gil (silver label) is pure Monastrell from old, non-irrigated vines that was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. They had to do a severe selection, as the year was quite challenging (but later 2018 was even a more difficult year); they discarded a lot of grapes, and they told me that they had never sold so much wine in bulk. That seems to have paid off, and the wine is quite harmonious and clean. It has some dusty tannins and an austere profile. The oak is very well integrated, folded into the fruit. "

" Grapes used to produce this wine come from old vineyards. Chalky and stony soils, poor in nutrients, are ideal for the growing of the Monastrell variety, with a low yield of about 2.500 kg/Ha. This wine has been aged in French oak barrels. " ~ Winery notes
