Details

The wines produced by the Bodegas Valdesil winery greatly benefit from an Atlantic, mineral terroir composed of granite and slate that brings them a distinctive, unique character. Made from the indigenous grape Mencía, the red wine Valderroa 2015 is no exception to the rule.

The grapes of this Spanish red wine wine are bought to dedicated peasant winegrowers whose vineyards belong to the Valdeorras DO, in the Galician province of Orense. The vines grow at an altitude over 500 metres above sea level and are spread out through different plots.

Harvested by hand, this Mencía wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts. The wine was fermented, macerated with daily pump-overs and finally clarified, filtered and cold stabilized.

Properly stored, it will evolve nicely over the next 2-3 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

Valderroa has a bright, cherry-coloured robe with a shiny violet rim.

Nose

This red wine made from Mencía in Valdeorras has a nose defined by intense notes of red fruits, along with hints of blue flowers, some touches of spices, wet herbs and beautiful mineral undertones.

Palate

This red wine produced by Bodega Valdesil is fresh and energetic, with a meaty, yummy texture that shows notes of red fruit, flowers and mineral remembrances. Long and crisp, with lively tannins, a tense acidity and a mineral aftertaste.  

Our personal opinion

Valderroa 2015 is an inviting Mencía, full of freshness, character and fruit.

    Mineral, juicy, a bit wild, full of impetus. Pairs fabulously with T-bone steaks and BBQs. Once again, incredible value.
