Characteristics of Rodrigo Méndez O Raio da Vella Tinto

Rodrigo Méndez O Raio da Vella Tinto is a red wine made with native varieties Caíño Tinto and Espadeiro by Rodrigo Méndez in the D.O. Rías Baixas.

Run by one of the most prestigious winemakers in the Galician wine world, Bodega y Viñedos Rodrigo Méndez is located in the heart of the Salnés Valley, in the town of Meaño (Pontevedra). A very personal project that combines hundred-year-old family vineyards with new acquisitions that are less than 6 years old.

The Rodrigo Méndez O Raio da Vella Tinto vineyard is right on the edge of the sea. Strains planted in sand and granite kaolin soil, and cultivated using traditional methods in an Atlantic climate. Harvest and selection is carried out manually in 15 kg boxes.

In the winery, the Rodrigo Méndez O Raio da Vella Tinto grape ferments spontaneously with its native yeasts. It is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Rodrigo Méndez O Raio da Vella Tinto is a red wine that holds onto the full freshness and vivacity of the Rías Baixas native red varieties.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Bodegas y Viñedos Rodrigo Méndez

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
