2017 Vinedos Viejos Vino de Montana Field Blend

Sierra de Gredos, Spain

Light, breezy and savoury, this Grenache-dominant blend from Spain will please the palate and the wallet




About The Wine

The Vinedos Viejos Vino de Montana Field Blend brings together Grenache (Garnacha) with two rare varieties (Rufete and Pinuela) for a light and delightful red blend.

Showing aromas of cherry, raspberry and a touch of spice which develops into a savaoury palate with herbal, spice, smoke and earth. Tannins are light while acidity is fresh, making a bright and playful wine.

With a few years in bottle already it's in a great spot at the moment, and while it can still have a few more years to rest, it should be drunk within the next few years.

About Vino de Montana

Vino de Montana is a range of wines made from grapes sourced from high-altitude vineyards in the Sistema Central, a mountain range running through the middle of Spain, dividing the northern and southern halves of the country.

The majority of the wines are made from Grenache (Garnacha in Spanish), as well as rare varieties that aren't easily found elsewhere, grown in grantie soil and offering delicate, perfumed and fresh wines.

Vino de Montana is an effort to provide a sustainable source of income for the growers, particularly after wine cooperatives had closed and left them with uncertain futures.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The main varieties are Piñuela (a local clone of Alvarelhão / Brancellao), Garnacha and Rufete

The wine is a coupe of grapes from the Sierra de Gata in the north of Extremadura, near the Portuguese border. The vineyards are found on small terraces of blue granite slopes, surrounded by forests of chestnuts and pines.

Deep dark red colour with tinges of black around the edges and a semi-translucent red hue. Light, vibrant and delicious, intense juicy dark raspberry, liquorice and spicy dark cherry flavours overlay a background of smoky incense infusions, earth, dried herbs and pepper. Slightly dryish but otherwise velvet-like tannins finishing with plenty of fresh acidity and a long moreish aftertaste.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
