Atlantis Mencía is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the winery Maetierra. The wine is, as its name suggest, a monovarietal from the grape Mencía.
The microclimate of this region is special: smooth and gentle, but a little humid. This is a continental climate but undoubtedly influenced by the Atlantic.
The grapes that produced Atlantis Mencía grew on vines that have reached more than 50 years of age. The vines are planted on slopes and are located at 450 to 600 meters above sea level.
After the harvest, which is completed by hand, the grapes are macerated for 8 days.
Atlantis Mencía is fermented alcoholically in stainless steel containers for 10 days.
Atlantis Mencía then receives a malolactic fermentation for around one week.
Atlantis Mencía belongs to the range Atlantis, from the group Vintae. The famous oenologist Raúl Acha heads up the project, to produce quality Atlantic wines from a range of different appellations of origins on the Spanish peninsula.
