Product Description
Details

The rediscovery of the indigenous Mencía grape is one of the best things happened in the Spanish wine scene in recent years.

From this exceedingly interesting red variety, the Casar de Burbia winery produces Casar de Burbia at the very heart of DO El Bierzo, Mencía's homeland.

Made from 40-year-old grapevines scattered across several plots and located in the town of Valtuille de Arriba, this Spanish red wine was macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Before being transferred into French oak barrels, it was aged for two months in its lees. After that, Casar de Burbia 2015 was aged for 10-12 months in 2nd and 3rd year oak barrels.
