Product Description
Details

And uncommon Spanish red wine from DO Rías Baixas-aka Albariño country-Terra de Mareas Mencía is crafted solely from Mencía grapes.

Produced by bodega Terra do Mareas do Nordes, the grapes are sourced from small parcels situated in Val do Salnés, farmed following minimal intervention and environmentally friendly techniques.

Hand-harvested and meticulously selected, the grapes were pressed whole bunch and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the process was completed, this varietal red wine from Rías Baixas saw no oak whatsoever in order to preserve its lean and crisp character.

Before its bottling, Terra de Mareas Mencía 2019 was kept for some months in the tanks.

The production of this Galician red wine is ridiculously low: only 900 bottles.

Appearance

The red wine Terra de Mareas Mencía is low ruby with a purplish rim.

Nose

Transparent and rather pure, this varietal Mencía carries aromas of raspberry, pomegranate and blood orange, with a note of underbrush and damp earth. 

Palate

Lean and fresh, this wine from Terra de Mareas do Nordes has a tangy acidity, some flavours of red berries and a citrusy and herbal note. Light-bodied and inviting, with a clean finish.

Our personal opinion

An Atlantic-sytle red, Terra de Mareas Mencía 2019 is a compelling wine.

Oh so lovely
Value
As a Mencia buff I was super thrilled to find one from Rías Baixas for the first time. Let's say that is less mineral than Bierzo's and more structured than Ribeira Sacra's. A delightful wine in any case.
