Pagos del Galir Mencia 2018

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

2018 harvest took place during the second half of September. The summer had been dry, permitting full ripening of the grapes and resulting in a fresh, aromatic harvest. Yields were somewhat lower than usual due to rain during flowering.

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
