Details

This Spanish red wine, Mencía, from the Ribeira Sacra region of Spain, is the little star of the Algueira winery. This is a grand wine that is very pure and it has a surprising color. This is a very pleasant wine with great evolution for such a young wine. From the Parcela Caballocovo vineyards, these grapes are harvested from 30 year-old grape vines that are planted on steep slopes and contain soils that are full of slate shale. These grapes are harvested by hand and transferred in deoxygenated boxes to the winery. The winery de-stems the grapes and then macerates them at a constant 50 ºF (10 ºC) before fermenting them for 18 days at low temperatures to conserve all of the aromatics of the Mencía grapes. With this perfect symmetry of flavors, texture, and aromatics, this wine is very close to perfection.

Additional Information

Appearance A cherry red colored wine with purple edges, medium layering, and a fine tear that lightly coats the glass.
Nose There are clear varietal aromatics from the Mencía in this wine´s nose that are reflective of the classic red wine crafted by Algueira. This nose has loads of red fruit aromatics, raspberry jams, and blueberry yogers. All of these aromatics are very enticing and accompanied by herbal notes and lite balsamic aromas.
Palate This wine starts with a very easy passage that is fresh, with good acidity. We begin to sense tannins over time. This is the first vintage of this wine and so far it has been received very well, but it is still young.
Our personal opinion We commend this wine for its elegance. We love to pair this wine with a wide variety of fish and rice based meals.
