Characteristics of Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba in Carracedelo, D.O. Bierzo.

 

Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba is a project lead by the renowned oenologist Gregory Pérez. Always with respect for the vines and their sustainability, the winery has become one of the greatest symbols of El Bierzo.

 

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a wine made mainly from Mencía, from an 80-year-old vineyard located at 700 metres of altitude in Espanillo. It is planted on decomposed slate soils with sandy areas. It also has a small percentage of Alicante Bouschet and Godello. They are manually harvested and placed in boxes. Once destemmed and crushed, they pass on to 2500 litre wooden foudres, where they go through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. They will remain in these foudres for 11 months before the wine is bottled, without filtering and with a slight clarification.

 

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a blunt, rustic wine with a lot of personality. An authentic Mencía, very well complemented by the freshness of the Alicante Bouschet and the Godello.

Tasting notes Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo

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.

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.
