Characteristics of Sila Mencía

Sila Mencía is a red wine from the D.O Monterrei produced by the Pazos del Rey winery. This wine is made using only Mencia grapes, the most used variety in Spain.

The grapes used to make this wine come from vineyards planted on slopes situated in the Valle Verín at an altitude of between 600-800 metres. The vines, which are around 15 years old, grow on clay and sandy soils which are deep and low in organic matter. This soil composition results in a great concentration of flavour in the grapes. The D.O Monterrai is home to a mediterranean climate, although there are significant continental influences.

After the harvest has been carried out manually and the grapes have been selected, they are transported to the winery in small boxes of 15kg capacity. This is done in order to avoid the grapes breaking prematurely and to ensure they maintain in optimal condition.

Once at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and ferment in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels of 225 litre capacity. Before the final bottling, Sila Mencía is briefly aged for 5 months in French oak barrels.

The grapes that Pazos del Rey uses come from the 5 hectares of vineyards owned by the winery. Situated mainly on slopes, the vineyards grows mainly the white variety Godello grapes and the red variety Mencía, which is used to make this wine.

D.O. Monterrei

Winery Pazos del Rey

The Monterrei Valley is often only considered for the cultivation of cereals, fruit trees and other horticultural products, but the Valley is today one of the most dynamic regions in terms of wine production. The transformation and improvement of viticulture and the installation of wineries such as Terra de Gargalo (owned by Roberto Verino), Pazos del Rey, Quinta do Muradella, Lobazán and Valdevellos, among others, have contributed to increased production of quality wines within designation of origin, which are becoming ever more present in the main Spanish markets.
