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.

A great white wine from Bierzo.

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".
