This young red wine is made from 100% Mencia grapes, the indigenous Spanish grape that shows all its splendour in the Bierzo region, in North West Spain. The vines from which this wine is made of are south facing and within altitudes of 600 to 750 meters. This high altitude allows grapes to breath during night time and favour natural acidity and freshness in this wine. This wine is fermented in stainless steel deposits and sees no oak.
This is a perfect example of what a Mencia young wine should be. In the nose, it shows the pure fruity character of Mencía grape at its best, with black forest fruits aromas (blueberry), floral notes and mineral touches. In the palate, the black fruits dominate with a herbaceous touch in the after taste.
Try it with meat dishes, a pork or chicken roast, pasta dishes, cured cheeses or Spanish ham and other Spanish traditional cold cuts (Salchichon, Chorizo, Cecina).
