2019 Merayo Mencia, Bodegas y Viñedos Merayo, Bierzo

Tasting Notes

Dynamic winemaker Juan Merayo crafts these 80 year old Mencia bush vines to give wonderful wines full of fresh, perfumed characters and ripe red fruit evocative of Mencia. Everything is handpicked with the appropriate reverence for these octogenarian vines before the grapes receive careful temperature controlled ferments and sensitive use of French and American oak to ensure Juan creates the expressive wines he is looking for.

Maceration and fermentation for 10 days in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Aging on its fine lees for a period of 6 months and a period of 1 week of micro-oxygenation. Final stabilisation and bottling.
