"Dark cherry red. Intense nose of ripe fruits, cassis and comfit fruit mixed with sensations of toasted coffee and licorice which bring finesse and elegance. Strength, flesh, savory and opulence combine in the palate of this wine that little by little develops in the bottle." - Winery
70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in oak for 22-26 months.
Bodegas El Nido was founded in 2002 and produces about 600 barrels of wine a year from 44 hectares of old Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, 90% destined for export. The project is a result of collaboration between the Gil family and one of the best Australian enologists, Chris Ringland. The winery is located in the Valle de la Aragona in the Murcia district of Jumilla.
