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.
Soils in these high altitude vineyards with a 30% inclination are mostly slate.
The 2019 vintage for Mencia grapes took place in the third week of September, characterised by a dry year with low yields and late maturation.
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 American oak.
