blueberries combined with subtle floral hints, juicy, fruity
and smooth.
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 wine is made from 100% Garnacha grapes grown in the village of Cadalso de los
Vidrios, which is located in the Sierra de Gredos. As part of the Sistema Central
Mountain range, it forms the backbone of the Iberian Peninsula and is a sprawling
system boasting a rich and diverse heritage of grape growing, with a number of
unusual varieties- many are not grown elsewhere in Spain. The soils are decomposed
granite which produce fine, elegant and age-worthy wines. The vines are planted at
between 700 to 1,100 metres above sea level. These high altitude sites deliver wide
diurnal temperatures which 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. They are mostly grown in small, terraced
parcels with a northerly orientation and are hand-harvested.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted and destemmed prior to fermentation in concrete
tanks with selected natural yeasts for maximum expression of the personality of the
village of Cadalso. The wine was aged for five months in concrete tanks, without any
oak influence to showcase the purity of fruit.
