Region: Uclés Reserva DO, Spain
Varietal: 100% Tempranillo
In the north-east of La Mancha, in one of the highest and coolest areas, lies The D.O. of Uclés which was founded in 2005. It is a very strict D.O. with yield restrictions based on the age of vine and the location in which they are planted.
Their wines are farmed at 850m elevation in clay soils with a lime substrate. Thanks to the high elevation and calcareous influence from the lime, the wines are lighter and brighter than one might expect from central Spain. Winemaker Todd Blomberg calls the viticulture at Finca La Estacada “transitioning organic,” and views the climate and land easily suitable for working without systemic chemical influences.
18 months aging in American Oak and 7 months in bottle.
