Pagos del Galir Mencia 2017

Galicia
  • 75cl bottle

Vibrant dark cherry red in colour. Great aromatic intensity of fresh red fruits, balsamic and sweet spice. Red fruit aromas are balanced by subtle toasted notes from 6 months ageing in oak. Silky tannins and a soft fruity finish, this is a well-structured, mouth-wateringly fresh red wine.

Vineyards

Soils in these high altitude vineyards with a 30% inclination are mostly slate.

Vintage

We have classified the 2017 vintage as very good. One of the shortest in the Valdeorras Dos history, production fell by over 20% due to April frost, summer hail and overall drought. Harvest started very early in September and concluded within 2 weeks.

Winemaking

Cold maceration of the grapes in scale fridges and of the must 48 hours before alcoholic fermentation. Destemmed but not pressed in order to preserve the primary aromas. 8 months barrel ageing in French and America oak.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
  • Mature Strong Cheeses
Great with grilled meats
