Characteristics of Avancia Mencía

Avancia Mencía is a red wine 100% Mencía from old vines grown in two vineyards planted in 1920 and 1935, next to the village of O Barco de Valdeorras, in Galicia. It has the clear Atlantic influence of this area in the Northeast of Spain. Grapes are manually harvested in small baskets to avoid damaging the fruits.
The whole elaboration process is supervised by the oenologist Amy Hopkinson. Every cluster goes through the selection table, and all grapes that are not intact and ripe are discarded. The wine goes through an ageing for 14 months in new French oak barrels. It is bottled unfiltered.
Serve at 16.0ºC

Tasting notes Avancia Mencía

Avancia Mencía 2016 is a concentrated, deep and intense red wine. This vintage stands out for its aromatic intensity, ripe black fruit, with marked notes of its ageing. In the mouth, it shows volume and complexity, with a long and persistent finish.
Sight Dark cherry colour with soft ruby red edges. Bright, high robe wine with beautiful tears. Nose Clean, rich and expressive in the nose. Outstanding notes of fleshy black fruit. Highly spicy wine with pleasant toasted and roasted notes and a background of balsamic, mineral and undergrowth aromas. Taste In the palate, this wine is fleshy, succulent, powerful and embracing. Its acidity and tannins are nicely balanced, which makes its mid palate very appealing. Long and very persistent finish marked by its intense toasted aromas.
