Production

The 100% Mencia grapes are sourced from old vines (over 80 years of age). The wine spends 6 months on its lees.

Vibrant aromas of cherry and red berry with a hint of violet. The palate is complex with crunchy berry fruit, a hint of liquorice, smooth tannins and floral characters - all balanced by fresh acidity and with a velvety finish.

Food match

Perfect with chicken or light red meat dishes - cooked in wine or with tomato sauces. Or delicious served lightly chilled too!
