There has been a growing global movement to revive and re-market local varietals. Mencia, a Spanish northwest native, has benefitted from the new direction in viticulture and is quickly gaining world-wide attention. When it comes to the grape Mencia, Raul Perez, winemaker at Castro Ventosa, is obsessive; no detail is overlooked in his quest to accurately express the purity of true Mencia in addition to the region.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks and then left in 5,000 L oak vats for 3 months, The wine produced is fresh and without a ton of oak characteristics despite the Malolactic Fermentation. You will find it to be fruit forward while maintaining notes of graphite in the balance. Pair this with your favorite Venison, Poultry, or Veal dish.
