Characteristics of Mengoba Mencía

Menogaba Mencía is a red wine from the D.O Bierzo produced by the Mengoba winery. This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Mencía and Alicante Bouschet. 

The Mencía grapes come from vineyards that are over 80 years old, located in the municipality of Espanillo, 700 metres above sea level. The Alicante Bouschet grapes, also known as Garnacha Tintorera, come 50 year old vineyards in the towns of Horta and Villafranca del Bierzo, 550 metres above sea level.

The vineyards are home to slate, clay and sandy soils, which are cultivated using artisan methods. The climate is continental, although with Atlantic influences, is ideal for the cultivation of these varieties of grapes. The harvest is carried out manually, ensuring that the grapes to not break and that they remain in the best possible condition on arrival to the winery.  

At the winery, the grapes for Mengoba Mencía are destemmed and pressed before being placed into large wooden fudres. Here, the juice of the wine ferments and rests until racking, six months later. The wine is then bottled after a light clarification and without filtration.

Mengoba is a project led by renowned winemake Gregory Pérez. Working sustainably and with the upmost respect for the vineyards, the winery has become one of the most emblematic in El Bierzo.

Tasting notes Mengoba Mencía

Mengoba Mencía 2016 is a deep wine, with structure and freshness. This vintage shows all the aromatic potential, ripe red fruit with light toasted and spicy notes. In the mouth, it is silky and quite easy to drink.
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.

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.
