Vino de Montana Sierra de Gata Tinto 2020

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.

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 lightbodied 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
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
