El Corteo Jumilla 2011

Dense, dark hue in the glass, portending the luxuriously rich thrill-ride to come. Copious notes of dark fruit, baking spices and vanilla, introducing one of the most opulent palates in the world today: intense flavors include succulent blueberry, cherry and spices all wrapped into a profound texture balanced with an acidity that makes the mouth water and leaves you craving another glass! The colossal finish features chocolate, graham cracker, and espresso. Enjoy over the next 5-7 years.

El Nido Winery

The Bodegas El Nido project is the result of the collaboration of the Gil Family, Chris Ringland (one of the best Australian enologists and author of Clio and El Nido) and others.

The winery is located in the Valle de La Aragona, inside the Murcia district of Jumila and surroundings. The vineyards are 64 acres of old monastrell vines, all vaso trained and oriented northeast and 45 acres of cabernet sauvignon planted 25 years ago on smooth hills looking north.
