Traca i Mocador Blanc Montsant Mas de les Vinyes 2015

The Traca i Macador Blanc from Mas de les Vinyes is a versatile dry white wine with delicate aromas of lemon barley and a flinty and mineral flavour finishing on a saline note.

Producer Note - Mas de Les Vinyes is a family winery based in Cabacés, Tarragona. With a long history of cultivating wine grapes alongside other fruit trees, in the 1990s the family decided to focus on producing its own high quality wines. In 1999, they built their own winery and with an intrinsic passion for the land, they concentrated on the cultivation of international varieties Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon alongside the traditional varieties of Grenache, Carignan and Macabeo. The result is a stylish range of modern, youthful and uplifting wines, which are full of vibrant personality and are a reflection of contemporary Spanish lifestyle.

Vintage - A warm, dry summer was followed by a particularly hot start to the autumn which resulted in slightly higher alcohol levels. The vines were in excellent condition at harvest, with very healthy, ripe grapes and excellent phenolic maturity. The 2015 vintage was very good in DO Montsant for reds and whites, resulting in wines with excellent varietal typicity.

Vineyard - The vineyard is located in the DO Montsant in the north eastern Spanish province of Tarragona. The vines are grown at 480 metres above sea level where the diurnal temperature range is excellent for the production of quality grapes; warm days contrast with cool nights which help to extend the ripening period, encouraging the grapes to develop rich varietal characteristics while retaining balancing acidity. The natural weather conditions in the vineyard have enabled disease prevention with just the use of copper and sulphur preparations. The vines are cultivated following a philosophy of sustainable agriculture, with minimal intervention in the vineyard; synthetic products are avoided. The soils are sandy loam with sedimentary shale and incorporate a rich ecosystem.

Winemaking - The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity levels and vinified using traditional techniques at low temperatures. Following fermentation the wine rested on its lees with regular lees stirring or 'bâtonnage', imparting complexity and texture. The wine was aged for two months in French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Note - An easy drinking and versatile white blend with delicate floral and ripe fruit aromas from the Macabeo, balanced by pleasant sweetness from the white Grenache. Lively and refreshing with a zesty, dry finish.

Serving Suggestion - Seafood paella, sushi, light Asian-inspired fish dishes, or Mexican cuisine.

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.
