Characteristics of Mengoba Blanco

Mengonba Blanco is a white wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by Bodega y Viñedos Mengoba, a winery founded back in 2007 by winemaker Gregory Pérez and is home to 13 hectares of old vineyards.

The winery is located in San Juan de Carracedo, close to the Carracedo Monastry, one of the most important in the Bierzo and the Camino de Santiago (Way of St James). The region is home to smooth and moderate climate with high humidity. The average annual temperature is 12.3ºC, reaching lows of 3.6ºC in winter and highs of 23.6ºC in the hottest months of summer.

This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Doña Blanca and Godello, which come from old vines aged between 25 and 80 years old. The vineyards are home to slate, calcareous and stony soils and are cultivated using artisan methods, using outside products only if there is a risk of illness.

At the winery, the different grape varieties undergo fermentation separately, with the Godello grapes fermenting in wooden fudres, while the Doña Blanca grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks, at low temperatures. Following this, the wine is aged on its lees for between 6 and 8 months, with weekly battonages. Mengonba Blanco is then finally bottled following a light clarification and filtration.

Tasting notes Mengoba Blanco

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 Pale golden colour with waxy edges. Clean and bright. Nose Clean, very fresh and mineral, medium-intensity aromas. Its ripe white fruit aromas, its light floral and grassy notes, its light hints of tropical fruits and citrus and some nuances of bakery are very well combined with a highly mineral background. Taste It has a good, still fresh and mineral attack and an unctuous, balanced mid palate. In the palate, this wine is round and shows a good acidity and a long finish with a marked persistence in which, finally, some nice toasted notes are noticed.  A great white wine from Bierzo.

Production area 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.
