Limited Addition Mencia 2020
Commonly found in Bierzo and other parts of Spain, this is the FIRST Mencia to be planted and made into wine in Oregon! What a blast! Bright red/blue/black fruit notes, and a natural, unfiltered mouthfeel and style. Earthy, peppery, bright, and as delicious as it is rare.
We love it with…
Grape: 100% Mencia
Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Vinification: The grapes were destemmed and foot tread for the first few days, the cool fermentation was intensely fragrant with rose, musk, and blue fruits that morphed into exotic paprika, chorizo and sumac aromatics.
