Characteristics of Unculín Tinto

Unculín Tintois a red wine produced by José Antonio Garcia Viticultor in Valtuille de Abajo, D.O.Bierzo.

 

José Antonio García began this project in 2010. After training and working in the restoration industry in Barcelona, he decided to recover the old family vineyards and start to produce wines, with features that were loyal to the terroir and the varieties.

José Antonio García's family has 22 hectares of old vineyards, between 80 and 100 years old, divided into 75 plots. José Antonio also cultivates 4 more hectares of smaller winegrowers of the area. All of these vineyards are located between 500 and 600 metres, influenced by an Atlantic climate that is partly continental and mild.

José Antonio García works with respect towards the environment, performing organic winegrowing, and aiming to produce wines that represent the area, with local varieties, and always loyal to the terroir where they were born.

 

Unculín Tinto is a wine made from Mencía, from vineyards that are over 80 years old, planted on predominantly clayey soils.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, 70% of the grapes are destemmed. They ferment in stainless steel deposits with wild yeasts. After this, the wine rests in the same deposits for a 4 months with their fine lees.

 

Unculín Tinto is a fresh, juicy and thin wine. A Mencía that is ideal for any time of day.

Tasting notes Unculín Tinto

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery José Antonio García Viticultor

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
