The 2017 Juan Gil (silver label) was produce with Monastrell from old, dry-farmed vines on stony limestone soils. It fermented in open-top stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. This is a textbook Mediterranean vintage with a varietal profile mixing aromatic herbs, berries and spices, with a smoky touch. It has notes of esparto grass and other aromatic herbs and ripe berries. It has fine-grained chalky tannins and a dry finish. Truly Mediterranean and a textbook Jumilla. 312,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.
