Producer Note
Quinta de Quercus is a 44 hectare estate located in the DO Uclés. The estate is
situated at 800 metres above sea level in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in the
heart of Castile. This contemporary Spanish producer produces exquisite single
vineyard and single varietal wines from parcels of low yielding 30 year old Tempranillo
vines. The vineyard is cultivated according to sustainable practices and respects the
biodiversity of the estate. Winemakers Tao Platón and Sam Harrop hand craft perfectly
balanced wines which are elegant and terroir driven, while showing depth, complexity
and a great capacity to age.

Vineyard
The grapes are grown in a single parcel called Viña Ocaña, which is the oldest
vineyard plot on the Quinta de Quercus estate. Situated at 800 metres above sea level,
the altitude imparts a distinct freshness to the wine. The warm days are tempered by
cool nights and this temperature difference helps to retain the acidity in the grapes
balancing the concentrated flavours. The vineyard is gently sloping and the old low
yielding Tempranillo vines are planted in chalky soils. The vines are sustainably
cultivated and the grapes are hand-picked when they have reached optimum
maturity.
Winemaking
There is no predetermined formula for making Quinta de Quercus, the wine is
individually tailored to the characteristics of the vintage. The grapes were carefully
selected and destalked before each parcel was vinified separately in small
temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The temperature and length of
fermentation, along with the number of pump-overs varied according to each tank, as
did the length of the post fermentation maceration. This particular vintage was aged
for 12 months in 300 litre French and 225 litre American oak barrels, of which 25% were
new.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of ripe blackberries are enhanced by subtle herbal notes and refined
layers of oak spice and clove. Full-bodied and concentrated, yet juicy and vibrant, this
wine delivers a beautifully textured palate of velvety, finely-knit tannins and a precise,
long finish.
