vineyards laden with history
With its first origins dating back more than 5,000 years, it was not until the mid-19th century when the phylloxera plague hit large areas of Europe and the growth and expansion of Jumilla's
wine-growing economy began.
The area became a wine-producing Denomination of Origin in 1966, one of the oldest in Spain.
The Monastrell grape is a very popular grape variety in the crops of the Mediterranean basin. Especially on the Spanish Levante coast, where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. Late variety, whose harvest usually takes place at the end of September and October and which can overripe on the vine if the weather conditions allow it.
Our Monastrell stands out for its freshness and versatility when combined with other varieties such as Shyra, thanks to the soil and weather conditions.
Originally from France, it is a variety that, in order to mature, needs many hours of sunlight. It generates brightly colored musts, with a high sugar content and quite tannic. They are full-bodied wines, with a powerful red color, with violet tones and aromas of raspberries, blackberries and plums when it comes to young wines. With aging, they become more complex, fleshy and fatty wines, with aromas of caramel, vanilla and mocha, among others, as well as balanced acidity and sweet tannins.
Originally from the Bordeaux region of France, Cabernet Sauvignon is the most cultivated red grape on the planet. With a small, spherical berry, with a thick blue-black skin, the Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety was born in the 17th century as the result of crossing Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. Dark red wines, with violet notes that over time take on tile hues. An ideal grape variety for aging wines that age for a long time, giving them sensuality and body, dense tannins and complex aromas of currant, cedar and tobacco.
Of uncertain origin, there are several theories about the origin of Syrah. Some place it in the Persian city of Shiraz, others place its origin in Italy and others in the French Rhône. It is the third most cultivated Syrah red grape variety in the world. It produces friendly and tasty wines, with body, vigour, a wide variety of tannins and remarkable acidity. They are fresh, with floral (violet) and fruity aromas (blackberry, blackcurrant...), they gain complexity in aging, settling well in the bottle after a period in oak barrels, and acquiring aromas with hints of smoke and spices that leave a prolonged memory in the mouth.
Originally from Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc, also known simply as Sauvignon, is the second most popular white grape variety after Chardonnay. It produces dry, full-bodied and aromatic wines, generally thought to be consumed young. Greenish in color with golden reflections, the Sauvignon Blanc stands out for its herbaceous aromas, which give flavor to dried grass, and fruity aromas of pineapple, mango and pink grapefruit.
