Losada is a single variety of Mencia, a typical variety of Bierzo. The grapes come from old vines which are 40 years old, planted in small clay slopes. This is typical in Bierzo, as most of its vineyards are grown on steep slate soils.

Regarding its preparation, Losada undergoes a 12-month aging in oak barrels which are 2-3 years old.

Tasting notes Losada

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.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.
Sight Cherry red with red reflections. Clean, bright and deep. Nose Fruit flavours, presence of red fruit and notes of aging. Taste Fresh and silky entry. Great body and structure. Large and persistent.
Sight Bright cherry red colour with intense purple reflections and a medium-high robe. Abundant thick slow-falling tears which stain the glass slightly. Nose On its great balsamic background with intense floral aromas, abundant notes of red fruit are released along with some notes of black fruit and a wide range of spices and noble toasted hints wrapped in very creamy aromas. Some hints of coffee, toffee and leather are also noticed. Taste Great red wine with an excellent long mid palate, very bulky and highly tasty. Silky and fresh palate, in which the notes felt on the nose are released again and become very expressive. Lots of fruit and creamy and even mellow notes provided by the ageing are felt on a subtle mineral and earthy background. It has an excellent, well balanced acidity and elegant, well integrated tannins which are still quite noticeable. Long and very persistent finish.
Sight

Intense cherry color.

Nose

It is a very good wine with intense, complex, with lots of fruit, memories of autumn flowers and leaves. Light smoked barrel bring a depth of wet soil, very varietal.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Losada Vinos de Finca

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.
