Description

PACO Mencia

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.

Winemaking info:

  • 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.
