The winery focuses its production in wines made from native grapes. This Spanish red wine is produced from vineyards over 30 years of age planted in slate and clay soils in several plots located at altitudes between 300 and 500 metres.
After a meticulous harvest, Joaquín Rebolledo Mencía 2018 was traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks.
Drink this young Mencía red wine within the next 2 years.
The young red wine Joaquín Rebolledo Mencía has a clean cherry colour with a purplish rim.
This expressive young red wine from Valdeorras suggests some intense aromas of blackberries, cherries and raspberries, underpinned by remembrances of balsam, slate, cocoa and red flowers.
Linear and fresh, this Mencía by Joaquín Rebolledo has grip and a good definition. Clove, pepper, red fruit, aromatic herbs and some original, sort of ferric remembrances. Crisp acidity, lively tannins and medium finish.

Mencía vinos are becoming alarmingly good!! I'm going to have to start buying dozens of cases of them!!
I am very happy to have discovered the Mencía wines. They are neither super-dense nor diluted. These are the kind of wines I like.
