Enjoy Corral del Obispo 2017 until 2021.
The red wine Corral del Obispo has an intense cherry colour with some violet edges.
Intense and very pleasant, this Mencía from El Bierzo is full of juicy wild berries, accompanied by creamy notes over a balsamic and herbaceous background. There are also subtle touches of leather.
Smooth and silky, the fruit of this red wine from El Bierzo continues to be very present. Some liquorice, blueberries, and mineral overtones. Excellent acidity and crunchy tannins. The wine finishes quickly, but leaves a tasty aftertaste.
|Our personal opinion||
From El Bierzo, Corral del Obispo 2017 is a lively and fresh Crianza red wine which pairs excellently with roasted meat, cold cuts and cured cheeses.

I've been buying every vintage since I discovered the wine. Great value.
Unimpeachable red wine. Interesting grape, halfway between tempranillo and Pinot.
