The flagship wine, Juan Gil Silver Label, is made with certified organic Monastrell grapes from over 40-year-old vines. The chalky and rocky limestone soils, poor in nutrients, are ideal to grow the Monastrell varietal, and the vineyards are low yielding, about 1.04 tons/acre. The Gil family uses progressive winemaking techniques including laser optic sorters after grape harvest to ensure the best fruit is selected. The wine is then aged for 12 months in French oak before bottling.
Deep purple/black color. Explosive aromas of ripe currant, red berries and smoked notes. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-decassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence, and a long spicy wellbalanced finish including toasted notes provided by the French wood.
