Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Careful selection of grapes and the collaboration of Norrel Robertson MW with local knowledge has produced a clean and pure Mencia wine typical of the Bierzo area.

Bush vine Mencia , hand harvested , crushed and destemmed from vineyards located in the valleys between the villages of Corullon, Villafranca del Bierzo and Cacabelos. Very complex soils ranging from alluvial clays and stones at the valley floor to granite and schist higher up on the slopes. 

Pronounced intensity of primary raspberry, cherry and prune varietal fruit characters on the nose with complex earthy notes of spice and liquoice. The palate is full bodied with fine, soft tannins and well balanced acidity. Soft raspberry and wild berry fruits give way to a long, smooth, spicy finish. Fresh, unoaked with pure Mencia character."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​A rich, dark, deeply translucent red in the glass. There’s profoundness to the savoury, berry-embossed nose and it screams Europe in the palate. It has all of those earthy, savoury, tarry, peppery nuances with fine youthful tannins and very concentrated juicy red fruits that remind me of cranberries and red guavas – yes, guava jelly – with a touch of salinity to the very long and very succulent finish. An unoaked red made from the Mencia grape, it will develop in the bottle for several years."
