Warm La Poulosa column and 90-year-old vines - dense and softly fruity Mencía!
Terroir, production method and maturation: The grapes used for the wine come from a 1.9-hectare vineyard filled with iron-rich clay. The shelter is the warmest of the Vizcaina shelters facing east. As a rule, the vines are 90 years old, with some reaching up to 140 years old. After hand-harvesting at the beginning of September, the wine ages in whole bunches while the grapes macerate for 35 days. The wine matures for a year in used 500-liter oak barrels.
Use: With umami-rich mushroom dishes.
Description: The intensely deep scent has earthy berries and spiciness. The taste is dense and giving, and the wine's intense fruitiness and ripe tannins make it approachable. The whole is refreshed by a noticeable acidity.
