Características de Algueira Merenzao
Algueira Merenzao is a red wine from D.O. Ribera Sacra produced by Algueira. This wine is a single variety Merenzao, local variety to Galicia. For the preparation, there is a prolonged fermentation maceration process with a scrape, at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged for 11 months in French oak barrels.
We recommend aerating the wine 30 minutes before serving.
The DO Ribeira Sacra is a region that perhaps paints one of the best pictures of heroic viticulture, having even been awarded recognition by CERVIM, the awarding body for this style of viticulture. The term ‘heroic viticulture’ refers to viticulture in areas that have a topography and soil conditions that complicate the work in the vineyards and make cultivating the vines and harvest a challenge. The region is home to an Atlantic climate, rivers as thermoregulatory agents, low rainfall, slate-schistose and granite soils, small sized plots and vineyards grown on steep slopes. The result is excellent wines with great personalities that truly express the dramatic and exciting nature of the landscape.
