The wines from Jumilla represent exceptional value and we are thrilled to have three producers who not only make terrific wines but who have a serious ecological agenda too. The vineyards are located in the heart of the DO and consist of widely spaced, old vine Monastrell that still sit on their European rootstocks (Pie Franco). The fruit is hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks in temperature-controlled conditions. The wine is aged in bottle only allowing all the delicious and concentrated fruit to shine through. This is a fabulous, juicy red wine with spice, black fruit and a refreshing vein of acidity to hold it all together.
