Vibrant dark cherry red in colour, with a great aromatic intensity of fresh red fruits, balsamic and sweet spice. Silky tannins and a soft fruity finish, this is a well structured, mouth-wateringly fresh red wine.
100% Mencia grapes, from the high altitude, steeply sloped vineyards along Spain's coast of Galicia. Smashing partner for grilled meats and BBQ.
Winemaking Cold maceration of the grapes in scale fridges and of the must 48 hours before alcoholic fermentation. Destemmed but not pressed in order to preserve the primary aromas. 8 months barrel ageing in French and America oak. Vintage 2018 harvest took place during the second half of September. The summer had been dry, permitting full ripening of the grapes and resulting in a fresh, aromatic harvest. Yields were somewhat lower than usual due to rain during flowering.
