Pago de Valdoneje Mencía 2019

15.75

Description

From 90 year old vineyards in Valtuille de Abajo, Bierzo, this unoaked joven red is the essence of the Mencía grape.

Bright ruby red in colour with violet reflections, the nose is vibrant and fruity, blackberries and red cherries intermingling with hints of balsamic, lavender and mint. The texture is what makes this wine though, a silky, minerally base that allows the fruit to roll off the tongue and provides ample length to enjoy more earthy and floral notes — walnut, liquorice, rose — as they reveal themselves.

Enjoy with roast spring lamb, charcuterie or hard cheeses.

Producer: Vinos Valtuille

After a few decades working their land and vines for other producers, Dimas and Isabel García decided at the end of the 1990s it was time to build their own winery, for the future of their family and their vineyards. It's a decision we're extremely grateful for — this is a small farm, just 15 hectares of Mencía vines up to a century old, that we get to enjoy as single estate wines.

Two of the couple's four children, Marcos and Elena, run operations today; Marcos in the vineyard and cellar, Elena the driving force behind the family's growing success domestically and internationally, with glowing reviews from the likes of Luis Gutiérrez and James Suckling.
