Details

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.

A single varietal Mencía, it is made from vines planted in several plots at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level within the DO Valdeorras, in the Galician province of Ourense.

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.

Additional Information

Appearance

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

Nose

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.

Palate

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.  

Our personal opinion

An inviting, Atlanic Mencía, Valderroa 2016 is excellent with BBQs.

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