Product Description

Master oenlogist Raúl Pérez, together with Galician oenologist Rodrigo Méndez, are the producers of Castro Candaz, a varietal Spanish red wine from the DO Ribeira Sacra made solely from Mencía.

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.

Additional Information
Additional Information

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.

Our personal opinion

Supple and joyful, Castro Candaz 2019 is excellent with BBQ'd meats and oily fish dishes.
