Characteristics of Vehemencia

Vehemencia is a young red wine from the D.O. Bierzo made by the Vehemencia winery with the native Mencía variety.

The hundred-year-old winery Vehemencia is owned by Enrique Prada, and located in the town of Villadecanes (León). A name inspired by the variety par excellence of the D.O. Bierzo, la Mencía, Vehemencia is a project that is passionate about bringing out the vividness and vigour of the variety.

The Mencía variety crop stands out for its great geographical contrasts. Mountainous variety, deep basins and stark climatic contrasts that really boost the quality of the grape. They are also centuries-old strains that are cultivated using organic methods, resulting in 100% Bierzo quality wines. The harvest is carried out with great care and the grapes are selected manually.

In the winery, spontaneous alcoholic fermentation happens in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature that does not exceed 28ºC.

Vehemencia is a young red wine from centuries-old Mencía vines, which results in a fresh and very vigorous wine.

Tasting notes Vehemencia

Vehemencia 2016 is a juicy red wine with a great presence of red fruits, dairy notes and a floral background. On the palate it is well structured, with good acidity and a persistent fruity aftertaste.
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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

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.
