The fruit for this wine comes from two sub-zones in Ribeira Sacra, Amandi and Val do Bibei. Both sites contain plenty of granite and sands and are farmed organically. The vines range from 20 to 60 years in age and the wine is made up of 90% Mencia and 10% Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) that's 20% whole bunch. It's fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel and then aged in large, mature French oak for 9 months. It's racy and vibrant with plenty of red fruit but like all of Laura's wines it has striking freshness and plenty of mineral notes. It's plums, raspberries, cherries and blood orange fruits along with salted black licorice, a mix of floral elements and a touch of wild herbs. ANONYMOUS
