El Nido Clio 2013 – 96 points and Truly Amazing

El Nido Clio 2013 – 96 points and Truly Amazing

Wine Reviews 🕔March 26, 2016 0 comments

The 2013 vintage is finally here and it was worth the wait. Every year the El Nido and Clio are some of the best wines from Spain. El Nido is the collaboration between the Gil family, one of Spain’s leading wine families, and Chris Ringland, one of Australia’s best winemakers.  Year after year, the wines from El Nido are exceptional – lush, powerful and intense – with the Clio being predominantly Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) and El Nido being predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon – it’s one of Spain’s most ‘collectible’ wines.  Both of these opulent wines pair magnificently with pasta dishes, all sorts of meats (stews, grilled meats, roasts), sausages and mature cheeses.

The grapes for this wine are made from 12 Ha -29.65 acres- of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and 32 Ha -79 acres- of very old Monastrell, with a very low yield.
The grapes are harvested with small baskets to prevent bruising. The bunches are brought to triage tables where the best ones are selected. It spends 24 months in French and American new oak barrels where it gets a very typical complexity. The winery is located in the Valle de La Aragona, inside the Murcia district of Jumilla and surroundings.
