D.O. RIBERA SACRA

VINTAGE 2016

VARIETAL - MENICA  - 70 to 85 year-old vines– single vineyard wine

Single-vineyard aged red wine.  The essence of Mencía from Ribeira Sacra.  Wine made from selected grapes sourced from old vines in the “Os Conventos” vineyard, which is rock-strewn and nutrient-poor.  Limited production and only crafted in optimal vintages. 

TASTING - An intense wine, light-bodied, with an Atlantic personality full of nuance and complexity.  Big on fruit, spice, mineral, freshness, salinity and length.  Excellent ripe tannins.  For Pinot lovers that want something extra.

Ageing - 12 months in French oak barrels of 400 L

 This joint winemaking project between winemaker Andrea Obenza and Coca i Fitó in the DO Ribeira Sacra began in 2013. The Galician name which christens this project means “mad about slate”, tries to define the effort involved and the love for the land which are much needed when making wines in this area. It is a spectacular landscape of river gorges along the river Sil, where vineyards cling to the slate.
