The 2005 Clio, composed of 70% old-vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, is opaque purple-colored with an enthralling bouquet of pain grille, spice box, violets, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered, opulent, and full-flavored, this thick wine has superb concentration and balance. It will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025.
The Bodegas El Nido winery is the Orowines group stronghold in the Jumilla DO of Spain. This winery is located in the Aragona valley with over 44 hectares of grapevines of Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and Cabernet Sauvignon. These are very old grapevines and all of them have a north to northeastern orientation. With the goal of achieving a pure expression of Monastrell grapes in their wines, the familia Gil and Jorge Ordoñez came together to craft the grand wines of the Bodegas El Nido winery with the help of the brilliant Australian enologist, Chirs Ringland.
The Bodegas El Nido only crafts two wines, Clío and El Nido. These wines are crianza aged between 20 and 24 months in oak barrels and they are both produced in very small quantities. These are intense wines that are incredibly elegant and silky, with a perfect balance. These are very well-structured and persistent wines.
