This unusual wine is comprised of 80% Mencía and 20% Palomino, a vineyard mix often found in the Cantabria region of northern Spain. The vines are at least 80 years old and planted in broken slate soils.
The red and white grapes were co-fermented with wild yeasts in steel vats, It was then raised for 12 months in old French oak barrels without any SO2.
The result is an aromatic wine, ruby in colour, with formidable structure. It's like Morgon meets Barolo!
The nose is greeted with floral aromatics. In the mouth, mineral elements linger with very fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Bright, delicious fruit and delicately salty notes are perfectly balanced by the lacy, yet firm structure.
This wine is elegance in a glass.
