Light / bright reds - MENCIA, Via Nova. Valdeorras, Spain

Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2016 Now Finished: MENCIA, Via Nova. Valdeorras, Spain

Bin: 460
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Valdeorras is in Galicia in north west Spain, just north of Portugal. Within Galicia, it is actually to the eastern side, right next to the wine area of Bierzo, which is actually in Castilla Y Leon.
This wine comes from the valley of the Galir river, at an altitude is over 600m.
Grape Variety: 100% Mencia, fermented cool and matured without any use of wood, to retain maximum freshness.
Producer: Virgen del Galir was founded in 2002 and now has 20 hectares of vineyards, split amongst many tiny terraces. The poor, well-drained soil is mainly schist.
Old Bridge Rating: Mencia represents everything that is good about 'modern' Spanish wine. The grape, grown in the cooler north, produces wines of freshness, brightness and charm, very different to the oak-dominated styles that have been Spain's signature for decades.
