Bodegas El Nido Clio 75cl 2017 15.5% ABV
Bodegas El Nido Clio 75cl 2017
This Red Wine is a dark cherry red with an intense nose of ripe cassis fruit, roasted coffee and liquorice. These notes follow through onto the palate with savoury characters, spicy rich fruit flavours, smoky oak and firm tannins - but overall elegance.
Pairs well with grilled or barbecued meats, including peppered steaks and lamb kebabs.
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, 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.
The winery is in the Valle de la Aragona, Jumilla. The high altitude and long growing season in Valle de la Aragona, Jumilla, give freshness and brightness to the fruit and fine ripe tannins. The grapes are harvested in small baskets to prevent bruising, then undergo selection. Fermented and aged for 24 months in new French and American oak.
