The maceration and alcoholic fermentation of this Spanish red wine was carried out in wooden casks and steel tanks. After that, this red wine from El Bierzo by Viñedos Singulares was aged in 5,000-litre French oak vats for 6 months. It was bottled unfiltered.
Excellently priced, Corral del Obispo 2018 is a perfect introduction to the Mencía variety.
The red wine Corral del Obispo has an intense cherry colour with some violet edges.
Intense and very pleasant, this Mencía from El Bierzo is full of juicy wild berries, accompanied by creamy notes over a balsamic and herbaceous background. There are also subtle touches of leather.
Smooth and silky, the fruit of this red wine from El Bierzo continues to be very present. Some liquorice, blueberries, and mineral overtones. Excellent acidity and crunchy tannins. The wine finishes quickly, but leaves a tasty aftertaste.
|Our personal opinion||
From El Bierzo, Corral del Obispo 2018 is a lively and fresh Crianza red wine which pairs excellently with roasted meat, cold cuts and cured cheeses.
