Vinos Valtuille Pago de Valdoneje ‘El Valao’ Mencia 2019

“A 100% Mencia all the way from Bierzo in Valtuille de Abajo.  Intensely red and wonderfully fresh.  A perfect Summer red!”

Availability: Out of stock
Style: Red
Country: Spain | Bierzo
750ml ABV. 14

The grapes were hand-harvested from 90 year old vines on a single plot called ‘El Valao’.

This wine is produced from 100% Mencia grapes which only grow in Spain and Portugal.

If you are a fan of lighter aromatic reds such as Pinot Noir and Gamay, then you should definitely give authentic Mencia a try!

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks from which it was matured in French oak for 6 to 8 months.

Medium-bodied with beautiful floral, red fruit and subtle mint on the palate.  The nose is fresh with notes of toasted smoke.

Overall the wine is incredibly well-structured with great depth and a persistent fruit-driven finish.
