Mesta Organic Ucles Garnacha 2021

A juicy, fleshy unoaked red wine, showing great purity
and typicity of high-altitude Garnacha vines full of vibrant
red fruit flavours in a soft and easy style.
Producer Note
Mesta is a range of organically and sustainably grown single varietal wines, which
stylishly showcase the Spanish wine revolution under the symbol of the Mesta. Mesta
was a powerful alliance of sheep ranchers in medieval Castile, who controlled the
cañadas: the traditional rights of way for migrating sheep. To this day the cañadas are
protected from being blocked or built upon, a reminder of ancient rights and a model
of coexistence with nature. This modern range, from the fashionable DO Uclés in central
Castile, offers wines of great purity and varietal typicity.
Vineyard
The grapes are organically grown in high-altitude vineyards in the northernmost part of
Central Castile, where the continental climate enjoys sunny days and cool nights. This
diurnal temperature difference produces grapes with intense fruit and excellent varietal
definition, while retaining remarkable freshness. The vineyards are sustainably
managed as part of an integrated ecosystem and studded with century-old oak trees.
Low annual rainfall results in low disease pressure, enabling the vines to be grown
without the aid of fungicides. Fertilisers have never been used, only organic manure is
applied and weed control is managed by a low, superficial tilling. Rain water is
collected in a small reservoir and is used for drip irrigation in the case of extreme
drought.
Winemaking
Grapes were picked in the early morning and immediately transported to the state-ofthe-art winery. The berries were destalked, lightly crushed and fermented under
temperature controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation maceration
lasted for eight to 10 days in order to achieve a perfectly balanced style without
excessive extraction. The wine was made in an unoaked style to achieve a pure
expression of the fruit.
