This wine is elaborated in a completely traditional way, from the harvest to the grain-by-grain destemming. Fermentation in open French oak vats, introducing the unpressed grapes together with dry ice, making a pseudo carbonic maceration to enhance the fruitiest part of the plot.
Later, wine rests in French oak barrels, where looking for a fine and subtle contribution of the wood, for approximately 14 months, during which time the mineral traits of the wine settle until a rich subtlety and elegance are achieved.
This wine represents the classicism of Mencia, pleasant and with aging capacity.
Tons of black cherries, blueberries and lavender. Full-bodied, round, juicy tannins
and a glossy finish. Delicious.
Perfect with game, roasts and cured meats, burguers or cheese. Also perfect for any kind of stew.
