Quinta de Quercus ‘Single Vineyard’ Ucles 2013

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 26-Nov-2016
Even, black-hued ruby-red colour, lighter edged. This has a very aromatic bouquet with harmoniously melded aromas of dark-red and black-berried fruits entwined with funky, fragrant herbal and violet floral notes and layers of cedary oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is sweetly rich with succulent dark-red and black berried fruits interwoven with fragrant herbal notes and layers of spicy, cedary oak. The palate is smooth-flowing with plenty of fine-grained, flowery tannins providing structure and depth. The acidity is soft and lends background energy. This has richness and linearity, and the flavours of fruit and oak carry to a fine, dry, sustained, textural finish. This is a refined and harmonious Tempranillo with funky herb and spicy, cedary oak overlaying the dark-red and black fruit flavours. Match with roasted and grilled lamb, beef and game meat dishes over the next 6-8 years. The third release of the second wine of the Quercus Estate, a single vineyard Tempranillo, the fruit from the ‘Ocana’ and ‘Morras’ sites, from vines around 30 y.o., fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 300 L French and 228 L American oak barriques, 25% new. 18.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $33.99
