2015 Abad Dom Bueno Bierzo Mencia
This property has a state of the art winery using only estate grown fruit with wine being made in specially produced truncated cone shape tanks and no sulphur additions. Mencia is a little known grape variety that is only grown in the north-west of Spain. In the past, it has been light and often thin but this wine cannot be accused of this. Medium purple in colour with ripe raspberries and cherries and a touch of toast on the aromas. Quite light in weight but rich in flavour of cooked and fresh raspberries, bramble and forest floor. Hints of white cherries sit nicely on the finish with some very fine grained tannins.
