Production: Elaborated after a careful selection process from low-yielding old Monastrell vines and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted 25 years ago. The best grapes are selected at the sorting table and vinified separately. The wine is aged for 24 moths in French and American new oak barrels.
Bodegas El Nido founded in 2002, are located in the Valle de la Aragona inside the Murcia district of Jumilla. The winery belongs to the group Orowines, a joint venture between the Gil family, well known in the region for their wines, wine broker Jorge Ordoñez and famed Australian winemaker Chris Ringland, who at the same time oversees the winemaking at the winery. The vineyards, a total of 64 acres of old monastrell vines and 45 acres of cabernet sauvignon, are located on smooth hills overlooking north.
Tasting Notes: Great aromatic complexity with great concentration and volume. Very intense and forward with scents of blueberry, spices, smoky notes, tobacco, licorice. Full-bodied, candied dark fruit, creamy oak, lovely spicy and juicy finish.
Notes: Needs a couple of hours to breath, so decanting is recommended. Should develop nicely and will improve with some time in bottle.
