El Nido (4 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
In 2002, the year he set up Bodegas Juan Gil, Miguel Gil also co-founded one of the most ambitious quality wine projects in southern Spain, El Nido. With Australian winemaker Chris Ringland (ex-Rockford and producer of acclaimed old vine Barossa Shiraz) Miguel established a tiny winery next to Juan Gil to produce just 2,000 cases from the best low yielding plots in the area. Two award-laden and immaculately-crafted wines, Clio and El Nido, are made from 44 hectares of 65 year old Monastrell and 30 year old Cabernet Sauvignon.
El Nido is the older brother to Clio - An intense, voluptuous, complex and concentrated red, with opulent ripe fruit and unrestrained richness - but finesse too, with delicate wild berry fruit, subtle aromatics and good length. What the Italians would call a 'vino da meditazione', with multi-layered flavours and complexity. Pair with rich and full-flavoured red meat dishes - beef steaks, lamb, venison or wild boar sausages.
