Young and fresh Mencía and at the same time mature and varietal, it is a perfect partner for any occasion


The soil, a sustainable vine-growing and an oenology that respects the varietal characteristics and helps to stand out all the potential of bthe grape, are translated in this young, fresh and balanced Mencía. The maceration of the grapes, which are selected in the vineyard and inside the winery, allows the extraction of the Mencía variety aromas. After the alcoholic fermentation, in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, the soft pressing of the mush produce the new wines, which finally are rounded by means of a short duration stay inside a tank.

Red colour ranging from ruby to cherry, of mid-intensity, with elegant maroon flashes.

Nice intensity in the nose. The varietal notes are predominant—red fruit, greengage—and it has elegant notes of cocoa and blue flowers.

Fresh and tasty in the mouth. Even though it is young it has body. It is long and silky, and one can find again varietal hints of ripe fruit, with a soft and pleasant finish.
