Well what a year it has been. We have tasted a lot of wine but here is one that stood out for me.

Made by 4 friends who met at Oenology school with a passion for rebuilding old abandoned vineyards and using minimalist techniques throughout production and letting the terroir of the up and coming Ribera Sacra region of Western Spain with Atlantic  influences.

This wine from the 2018 vintage are as a good a representation of Mencia than we have seen for a long time.

The second of the 2 offerings is a little more concentrated and tightly wound with fantastic aging potential. Notes of peach, orange peel, kirsch and black tea. Quite energetic on the palate that is also mineral laden, savoury and displaying some wonderful intense purity. Medium to full bodied, from 60 year old vines fermented in open top concrete vats with a little sulphur added after spending 11 months in neutral oak.

The wine is super perfumed and nuanced, with a different twist, blood orange and a touch of curry/exotic spices. The palate reveals very fine and subtle minerality, great focus and symmetry, land it's long, vibrant and fresh and super tasty. JEFF SALT
