Vinos de Montana Sierra de Gata Red Wine 2018

The Vinos de Montana Sierra de Gata is a juicy and fresh red wine with vibrant red fruit aromas over a subtle spicy note of white pepper. Smooth and very drinkable.

Producer Note - Vinos de Montaña is a range of mountain wines from high-altitude vineyards in Sierra de Gredos and Sierra de Gata in the Sistema Central, the mountain chain that divides the Iberian Peninsula in its northern and southern halves. This project aims to reinvigorate old vineyards and sustain the communities that farm them. The wines are based mostly on very old Garnacha vines which are grown in granite soils, resulting in a perfumed, delicate and fresh expression of Garnacha, displaying the character of the vineyard parcels and villages in which they were grown.

Vintage - The 2018 vintage was characterised by a late harvest. Heavy rainfall during spring replenished the soil water reserves to nourish the vines during the summer. A mild summer followed creating a long, slow maturation period.

Vineyard - The grapes are grown in the Sierra de Gata in the northwest in the province of Cáceres. The vineyards are located in high altitude sites of between 700 to 1,100 metres above sea level, where the vines grow typically in small terraced parcels surrounded by pine woods. The diurnal temperature fluctuations at this elevation encourage a long, gradual ripening season for the fruit, producing concentrated flavours from the warm, sunny days coupled with fresh, balancing acidity from the cool nights. The very old bush vines are up to 90 years old and produce low yields of concentrated juice. Planted in decomposed granite soils, these vines produce fine, elegant wines. The vineyards are planted with a number of unusual varieties, most of which are not planted anywhere else in Spain. The vines are hand-harvested as a field blend. Ruefete is an indigenous Spanish early-ripening variety which produces light-bodied wines, while Piñuela is a local synonym for Alvarelhão, producing light, perfumed and delicate wines.

Winemaking - The grapes were destemmed and fermented in concrete vats at controlled temperatures with selected natural yeasts for maximum site expression. The wine was aged in concrete and steel tanks for five months, to allow the purity of fruit and nuances of the vineyard site shine through.

Tasting Note - The Vinos de Montana Sierra de Gata ia an elegant field blend showing vibrant aromas of red fruit over a subtle spicy note of white pepper. Light and delicate with wonderful purity of fruit, underpinned by refreshing acidity and soft, lingering tannins. This is a food friendly wine from high altitude vineyards.

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.
