Juan Gil Dry Muscat comes from a vineyard sitting at 700m altitude in the north of Jumilla. Wonderfully aromatic with jasmine notes. Ripe juicy stone fruit with a hint of pineapple. Zingy and fresh with subtle spice. 

The dry climate and limestone soils create the perfect climate for this variety. After harvesting the grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. A small amount (20%) is aged in old oak, and a portion in concrete eggs (10%) which adds texture.

The Gil family have been producers in Jumilla since the early 20th century but took a major step forward when Miguel Gil, great-grandson of the company's founder, built a new bodega in time for the 2003 vintage. Situated on the slopes of the Peñarrubia mountain, the highest part of Jumilla with poor stony soils noted for its richly flavoured, concentrated Monastrell, the bodega owns over 750 hectares of vineyards (mainly bush vines, unirrigated and of very low yield, of indigenous clones from their own nursery) and has access to further fruit from 30 to 70 year old vines. Bodegas Juan Gil is dedicated to producing powerful yet approachable and modern wines, mainly based on Monastrell, which is grown on 85% of the vineyard - other varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
