Produced by Bodegas Valdesil, Valderroa greatly benefits from an Atlantic, mineral terroir composed of granite and slate that brings this Spanish red wine a distinctive character.
Harvested by hand, this varietal Mencía was vinified in stainless steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts. Valderroa 2016 was fermented, macerated with daily pump-overs, and finally clarified, filtered and cold stabilized.
Properly stored, this red wine from Valdeorras will evolve nicely over the next 2-3 years.
The red wine Valderroa has a bright, cherry-coloured robe with a shiny violet rim.
This Galician red wine carries some delightfully intense, slightly wild notes of red fruit, nuanced by some mineral notions and a dash of aromatic herbs. A very idiomatic Mencía red wine.
Fresh and energetic, this red wine from Bodega Valdesil has a meaty, yummy texture and a delightful immediacy. Cranberries, underbrush and earthy remembrances. Long and crisp, with lively tannins, a tense acidity, and a mineral aftertaste.

Good wine. Deep and a bit earthy.
Fabulously fresh. Mencía unplugged.
Mineral, juicy, a bit wild, full of impetus. Pairs fabulously with T-bone steaks and BBQs. Once again, incredible value.
