A young wine born on the banks of the Sil river. It is full of fruits and flowers and perfectly represents the Mencía grape.
The Grape: Mencía (spanishwineexperience.es)
- For a long time these medium-sized red wonders were thought to have been related to Cabernet Franc – but DNA profiling has proven this not to be true.
- In fact it appears to be one of our native varieties, although possibly introduced by the Romans.
- It is identical to Portugal’s grape Jaen.
- It’s also locally known, as always it seems in this country, by other names: Loureiro Tinto, Negra, Negro, Tinto Mollar.
- Temperature controlled fermentation with the grape skins in stainless steel tanks, with pre-fermentation maceration for color extraction during the first week at 6ºC.
Food pairing: Perfect with fish, meats and cheeses.
Serving temperature: 54 – 59ºF.
- Appearance: Intense cherry color, medium to high core with a violet border.
- Nose: Intense aromas expressing red fruits, forest fruit jam, floral notes and a balsamic finish.
- Palate: The palate is elegant, fresh and fruity, with a balsamic and mineral finish. There is a good balance of alcohol and acidity.
