Algueira Mencia is a red wine from the Ribeira Sacra Denomination of Origin made from 100% Mencia grapes.
It is the winery's most produced wine. It is made from 100% destemmed and fermented Mencia grapes after a short cold pre-fermentation maceration.
Algueira Mencia Tasting Notes
Cherry red in colour and medium depth, it is a clear and bright wine.
On the nose, once the reductive notes typical of the variety have disappeared, the explosion of red fruit and black berries appears, which together with the milky notes reminds us of lollipops. Mineral notes are very present.
In the mouth it is fresh, but as it moves through the mouth we find an enveloping, sweet wine that reflects the good relationship between acidity and glycerine.
