Characteristics of Ponte da Boga Capricho de Merenzao

Ponte da Boga Capricho de Merenzao is a red wine made with the Merenzao native variety in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra by Ponte de Boga.

Ponte da Boga is located in the Ourense town of Castro Caldelas. A centuries-old winery located in spectacular surroundings with hills that can only be accessed by practicing what is known as heroic viticulture. The winery has been part of Corporación Hijos de Rivera since 2005 and since then, it has undergone a commercial expansion and now boasts a collection of well-established Ribeira Sacra wines.

Ponte da Boga Capricho de Merenzao comes from plots with old vines planted on shale and slate soils and cultivated using the traditional trellis and stake method to limit the yield. Because of the landscape, they use heroic viticulture methods. No machine is used, rather all the work is carried out manually using harnesses. The harvest is placed in 18 kg boxes.

The ripe Ponte da Boga Capricho de Merenzao grapes are destemmed and pressed when they reach the winery. The must then ferments in stainless steel tanks for 10 days with gentle pump overs and maceration for 8 days. Finally, malolactic fermentation and aging take place in second or third use French oak barrels over 10 months.

Made with the delicate and capricious Merenzao native variety, Ponte da Boga Capricho de Merenzao is a Limited Edition red wine displaying all the uniqueness of Ribeira Sacra.

Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Ponte da Boga

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
