Avilleira Mencía Valdeorras

CVNE, Avilleira Mencía Valdeorras, 2018

RRP N/A in UK

Mencía also sits proud on the list of grapes in the ascendant, recalling the best examples of Loire Cabernet Franc with its crunchy vivacity and bright red fruit purity. These vines from the village of As Ermitas are centurions and share the vat with smaller doses of Palomino and Garnacha Tintorera. The result is pure pleasure; cherry, blackberry and a hint of eucalypt, structurally impressive and with signature white pepper balustrading the ensemble. Only 3000 bottles made per vintage, alas.
