A super plush, concentrated blend of old vine Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is deep purple-colored with an exotic bouquet of grilled bread, spice box, violets, espresso and berries. Layered and opulent, this still has superb balance and poise. The winemaking at the El Nido project is overseen by renowned Australian vigneron Chris Ringland. After a rigid selection process, the grapes are basket pressed and fermented in new French and American oak for up to 2 years. We have been buying Clio since the first vintage, 2002. Founded as a joint project between the Gil family, who has done so much to put Jumilla on the map, wine broker Jorge Ordonez, one of the pioneers for unearthing high quality wines from Jumilla, and famed Barossa, Australia winemaker, Chris Ringland, El Nido is located in the Valley of the Aragona, 10 kilometers north of the town of Jumilla, in the "top boundary", so named because it is the highest altitude in the municipality.
