Characteristics of Demencia

Demencia is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Demencia de Autor winery. This is a single variety wine made with the Mencía grape.

The grapes used for this wine come from 25 plots which between them occupy just over 3 hectares of land. The vineyards are home to sandy loam soils. The local climate, however, changes between Atlantic and continental influences: the winters experience heavy rainfall which gives way to a fresh spring. Summer, however, is extremely dry, although scattered showers occur which favour the maturation of the grapes at the vineyard.

The harvest is carried out manually and are transported to the winery in small amounts, ensuring that the bunches are not damaged and the grapes arrive at the winery in the best possible condition. At the winery, the grapes are left to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts before undergoing pre-fermative maceration for 2 days and maceration (post-fermative) for another 72 hours. The fermentation process finishes in barrels, where various pump-overs take place, as well as a final spontaneous malolactic fermentation.

Demencia is then finally left to age for between 13 and 15 months in French oak barrels and refines in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled after having been stabilised naturally.

The Demencia de Autor winery is led by the agricultural engineer Nacho León, who specialises in working with the Mencía grape variety. The winery produces their wines in limited quantities, all of which come from old vineyards home to unique soils with special characteristics.

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Demencia de Autor

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
