Product Description

The producer of some interesting white wines made from Godello in the region of Valdeorras, Joaquín Rebolledo also crafts an interesting Spanish red wine. Precisely this Joaquín Rebolledo Tinto Barrica.

Made principally from Mencía, this red wine from Valdeorras is complemented with Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from 40 hectares of estate-owned vineyards.

The vines are planted in very steep slopes with soils composed of slate, sand and granite.

Carefully harvested and vinified, Joaquín Rebolledo Tinto Barrica 2016 was aged for 6 months in new French and American oak barrels.

After that, it was aged for a further 6 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Joaquín Rebolledo Barrica has an intense, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.


This Mencía from Valdeorras begins showing some elegant aromas of wild berries, along with fine wooden notes of menthol and licorice. The addition of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon has enriched the nose, with some toffee, cinnamon and pepper nuanced by some mineral undertones.


WIth a meaty body and a slightly unctuous texture, this red wine from Joaquín Rebolledo feels savoury and fresh. Creamy notes of balsam, toasted wood and spices, combined with fresh notes of red berries, orange rind and blackcurrants. Good acidity and long finish with some fruity and toasted remembrances. 

Our personal opinion

This Joaquín Rebolledo Tinto Barrica 2016 pairs wonderfully with hearty dishes.
