Varietals: Mencía 100%

Where the heck is Bierzo and what is Mencía? This historically overlooked variety from north west Spain has been given a new lease of life by this outfit with old vines, low yields, wild yeast and lots of oak aging. Big, dark, bold and chunky, this wine has lots of heady black fruit and earthy, leathery spice: a great pick for Bordeaux lovers.
