Qunita de Quercus, Ucles 2017

The Quinta de Quercus is a concentrated yet vibrant wine with berried fruits complemented by subtle spice, full bodied with a beautifully velvety texture.

Producer Note - 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.

Vineyard - 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 wines. 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.

Winemaking - There is no predetermined formula for making Quinta de Quercus, the wine is individually tailored to the characteristics of the vintage. For the 2014 vintage, the grapes were fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The temperature and length of fermentation, along with the number of pump-overs varied according to each tank, as did the length of the post fermentation maceration. This particular vintage was aged for 12 months in 300 litre French and 225 litre American oak barrels, of which 30% were new.

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

Serving Suggestion - An elegant wine of great gastronomic versatility, ideal with grilled or roasted meats.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
