Their main focus is to create good quality Spanish wines that mirror the ancestry of Jumilla terroir.
Jumilla is an emergent wine region from Spain, located West from Murcia. Red wines from Jumilla are predominantly made from Monastrell grapes. About 80% of the entire wine region grows Monastrell followed by Garnacha, Garnacha Tintorera, Cencibel, Macabeo, Airén, Pedro Ximénez, Malvasia and Chardonnay. Also other international varieties such as Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon generate high quality wines here. But to be considered a genuine Jumilla red wine it must incorporate at least 80% Monastrell.
Sauvignon Blanc Wines
Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape variety original from Bordeaux, France, where it makes a good pair with Sémillon in Sancerre. Sauvignon Blanc wines are generally associated with Pouilly-Fumé where the wine reveals a very specific flint aroma that derives from the region's particular limestone soils. A classic Sauvignon Blanc has grassy aromas with hints of nettles, blackcurrant leaf, green apples and gooseberries. Besides France, the grape makes excellent wine in New Zealand and the USA.
