Characteristics of Verónica Ortega Roc Mencía

Verónica Ortega Roc Mencía is a red wine produced by Verónica Ortega in Valtuille de Abajo (León) D.O. Bierzo.

 

Verónica Ortega, natural from Cádiz and trained in the best wineries of Burgundy and Priorat, was attracted to the terroir of El Bierzo. She decided to settle in Valtuille de Abajo to start to produce her own wines, thus initiating her most personal project.

Verónica Ortega mainly works with old Mencía vineyards using organic precepts. Vinification is carried out traditionally, with spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts and low amounts of sulphites. Wines that are faithful to the terroir, with character and a great personality.

 

Verónica Ortega Roc Mencía is a wine made form Mencía from two vineyards that are over 80 years old, planted on clayey-sandy soils with a lot of minerals contained in small stones.

They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes. 40% are vinified with their whole bunches, and the stems, in 4000-litre vats. After 40 days of maceration, they are vertically pressed and transferred to second and third-use French oak barrels. Here, they go through malolactic fermentation and an ageing of 12 months.

Tasting notes Verónica Ortega Roc Mencía

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.
Verónica Ortega Roc Mencía is a complex wine, with finesse and elegance. On the nose, the aromas of red and black fruit stand out, with hints of wood that are very well integrated. In the mouth it is balanced, long and very juicy.
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 Verónica Ortega

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.
