Product Description

"Algueira's Mencía Joven comes from the estate's younger Mencía vines and is fermented in stainless steel, seeing no oak. It's naturally fermented and opens with delightful whole-bunch spice, red fruits and mixed herb aromas leading to a vibrant, tangy palate with the notes of wild strawberry, red jube, cherry pit and white pepper. It almost doesn't touch the sides. It's a wine that parallels the freshness of a young Saumur red with its racy, mouth-watering personality. This is Algueira in juicy, easy-drinking mode and is a cracking release for this wine. There's a much more seductive, pulpy palate than previous releases at this young age. The texture is really creamy and 'Pinot' with fleshy, open, crushed red fruit notes, and a lovely, spicy, anise and lavender scented finish which is as fresh as a button. A touch of a reduction on the nose just adds a spicy complex dimension to the experience. Wonderfully delicious stuff!" Importer's Note
