Availability: In stock
The Mencía 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 Mencía 2021 was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
This varietal red wine from Ribeira Sacra is a transparent expression of the Mencía variety.
Pair this Galician red wine with pasta, risotto and oily fish recipes.
5,000 bottles produced.
Intense and bright, Castro Candaz Mencía is pale purple with a garnet rim.
Remembrances of meat, flowers and wild berries, typical of a varietal Mencía wine, with 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 long finish with lively remembrances of wild flowers, herbs and a slightly bitter note.
