Red Wine Castro Candaz 2019
Red wine from Ribeira Sacra. Varietal Mencía aged for 6 months in oak barrels.
Availability: In stock
The grapes were picked by hand, meticulously selected and macerated whole-bunch for 2 months. Then they were fermented and, after the process was completed, the red wine Castro Candaz 2019 was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Thanks to the expertise of Mr. Raúl Pérez and Mr. Rodrigo Méndez, here you will find a crystalline expression of the enticing Mencía variety.
Only 5,000 bottles produced.
Intense and bright, Castro Candaz is cherry coloured with a garnet rim.
Expressive remembrances of meat, flowers and wild berries, representative of a varietal Mencía from Ribeira Sacra, with some dim spicy hints and some mineral remembrances.
Light-hearted, linear and elegant, with smooth tannins and a great freshness. This wine of Raúl Pérez has a very long finish, with lively remembrances of wild flowers, herbs and a slightly bitter note.
