Characteristics of Brezo Mencía

Brezo Mencia is a young red wine from Bierzo made by Bodegas Mengoba. It is a blend of Alicante Bouschet and Mencia, although the Mencia is clearly predominant.

Brezo Mencia is produced from grapes from plots located in Horta and Villafranca del Bierzo. The average age of the vineyards, which are located at about 550 meters, is 50 years. The soil is clayey and sandy.

The harvest is done manually and in boxes so that the grains do not break. Grapes, when in the winery, are selected, destemmed and squeezed.

After these processes, Brezo Mencia rests in stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation takes place.

Bodegas Mengoba is located in San Juan de Carracedo, very near the famous monastery of Carracedo. The winery produces eight wines that enhance the quality of Bierzo.

Tasting notes Brezo Mencía

Extreme weather included low rainfall and summer drought with high temperatures resulting in an unusually early harvest. The most important weather events occurred on April 28th with a late frost that destroyed the crops of El Bierzo valley, and also the hailstorm that fell days later on May 9th, which destroyed part of the vineyards on the slopes of Corullón. The harvest was brought forward to unusual dates due to the high temperatures. Some winegrowers started to pick grapes the last days of August.The wines of this vintage have a good balance between structure and acidity. The fast ripening of the grape caused a small decrease in acidity that makes the wines accessible from the first vintage.
A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
Sight Pretty cherry red. Taste Fresh and powerful. It's nice and is very well structured.
Sight Intense cherry red colour. Nose Ripe fruit aromas. Citrus, balsamic and spicy notes. Taste Fresh, powerful and structured on the palate.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

    Winery Mengoba

    Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
