Product Description

Fans of crisp, crunchy, perfumed reds will be all over this bargain. It comes from old, low-yielding Mencia bush vines (from the Portela and Córgomo vineyards) situated on south-facing slopes of decomposed slate. The previous vintages have sold faster than a personalized One Direction pillowcase on eBay and the 2011 is just as pure and thirst quenching. Taking its cues from the warm, dry 2011 vintage you can expect more colour and juicy substance this year, yet the hallmarks that have made this wine such a delight to work with - scented, juicy fruit with violet and fresh, red fruit notes and driving mineral freshness - are all present and correct. It a joy to drink. If slate rocks your world, then this is for you.

"(no oak): Bright violet color. Vibrant floral and dark berry aromas are complemented by cracked pepper and smoky minerals. Sappy raspberry and blackberry flavors are given lift and spine by tangy acidity. Fresh, elegant and precise, finishing with persistent dark berry and violet notes. This is an excellent introduction to mencia, at a great price."
90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sept/Oct 13
