80% Mencia, the rest a blend of local varieties. Fermented in concrete and aged in big old oak.
Distinctive aroma that is not just dark-red-fruited but also peppery and has a hint of something more rich and meaty. But the primary character is pure fruit and lightly herbaceous. A touch herbal (?stemmy) on the palate and stony/mineral too. Fine-boned and dry. Surprisingly long for quite a delicate wine. JULIA HARDING MW, JancisRobinson.com
