Product Description

"This is a bit more serious (than Mengoba's Brezo Blanco). The white Mengoba is made from 50% Godello and 50% Doña Blanco - a manual fruit selection of the best grapes from those sites noted in the wine above. Perez ferments the Doña in stainless steel - to preserve its delicate aromas - while the Godello goes into large 5000-litre oak foudre. Each parcel is aged separately on their lees for up to 11 months with weekly stirring of the lees before blending. This is a fascinating, individual wine; the handling is much longer and more oxidative than it's younger sibling which only seems to enhance a sense of smoky minerality, a legacy of the broken slate & calcareous soil in which the vines are grown. The nose throws off exotic aromas of musk, baking apples, warm croissants and white flowers. It's sappy and fresh in the mouth, with orchard fruit, quince, floral and crushed stone flavours. The finish, with excellent structure and grip, really gives you something to chew on. There's something Burgundy-like going on here; imagine if Jean-Marie Guffens, Macon's enfant terrible, made wine from Bierzo fruit. Such is the clarity. Lovely stuff." Importer's note
