The grapes come from two vineyards, one planted in 1920 and the other in 1935; both of them in black, limestone soils.
Located at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level, the vineyards are oriented to the south to get the maximum amount of sunshine.
This red wine from Valdeorras was vinified in a traditional manner. Harvested in little boxes and carefully selected, the grapes were crushed by hand and fermented in new French oak barrels.
After that, this Spanish red wine was transferred into 2nd year French oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months.
Finally, this red wine from Valdeorras was not filtered prior to its bottling.

The wine Avancia Tinto Cuvée Mosteiro has a deep red colour with a garnet rim.
Nicely complex and ever-evolving, this old-vines Mencía smells of liquorice, fresh black fruit, red berries, spices and toast. On the background of this wine by Jorge Ordóñez, there are some creamy hints, a touch of blue flowers and some seductive mineral undertones .
Bold and smooth, Avancia from Valdeorras delivers a cascade of exultant red fruit (cranberries, raspberries), some toasted remembrances and a dash of wet earth and orange rind. There are some intringuing mineral, meaty and bloody undertones which really raise the complexity level. Crisp acidity, ripe tannins and a long, lively finish.
