Quinta de Quercus Single Vineyard Uclés 2017

QQU17

New product

Intense aromas of ripe blackberries are enhanced by subtle herbal notes of rosemary and tertiary complexity of fine oak, spice and clove. Full-bodied, yet juicy with a beautiful texture of muscular, but velvety, finely-knit tannins. Very concentrated, yet vibrant and fresh, with great length and precision.

More info

Quinta de Quercus is a 44 hectare estate located in the DO Uclés. The estate is situated at 800 metres above sea level in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in the heart of Castile. This contemporary Spanish producer produces exquisite single vineyard and single varietal wines from parcels of low yielding 30 year old Tempranillo vines. The vineyard is cultivated according to sustainable practices and respects the biodiversity of the estate. Winemakers Tao Platón and Sam Harrop hand craft perfectly balanced wines which are elegant and terroir driven, while showing depth, complexity and a great capacity to age.

The grapes are grown in a single parcel called Viña Ocaña, which is the oldest vineyard plot on the Quinta de Quercus estate. Situated at 800 metres above sea level, the altitude imparts a distinct freshness to the wine. The warm days are tempered by cool nights and this temperature difference helps to retain the acidity in the grapes balancing the concentrated flavours. The vineyard is gently sloping and the old low yielding Tempranillo vines are planted in chalky soils. The vines are sustainably cultivated and the grapes are hand-picked when they have reached optimum maturity
