12 bottle case
Check back late February for next shipment.
From a careful selection of 100% Mencia grapes, hand-harvested from old bush vines (up to 30 years old) grown in hillside sites (400-550 metres) on the slate-rich soils of the Sil Valley. The winery follows organic farming techniques but the vineyards are not certified.
The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, using indigenous yeasts. Aged in stainless steel tanks for 7-8 months, racked several times, and released with about 3-5 months bottle refining. A classic expression of the Atlantic influence and slate soils.
Our tasting note:Violet-tinged, cherry-red colour. A classic Galcian-style wine, with aromas and flavours of vibrant cherry and ripe red berries (raspberry), with smoky-mineral, (slight) green pepper, and violet notes. Refreshing on the palate with a clean, finish.
Menu match:An easy wine to drink on its own, and an ideal pairing with charcuterie, fresh cheeses, and light- to medium-weight meat (pork, chicken) dishes, and vegetarian options.
