2017 Harvest

Forgotten, but not lost. The recovery of two exceptional and unique vineyards: Miño and Sil; slate and shale. The most special example of our Mencía after it has been in a barrel. The result of a human project to appreciate the work of some winegrowers who shun the easy life and work in the most adverse areas.

  • D. O. Ribeira Sacra.
  • Atlantic climate with continental influence.
  • 100% Mencía grape.
  • Grape destemmed and crushed, fermentation for 10 days with gentle pumping, followed by a maceration during 10 days.
  • After malolactic fermentation the wine is aged in French oak of second and third use for 10 months

14% alc. vol. | We recommend decanting the wine before serving at around 15ºC
