Tasting notes Xestal Mencía

Sight Intense and dark cherry colour. Bright. Fine tears on the glass. Nose Intense and powerful. Lots of notes of ripe fruit are released with very expressive toasted and spicy notes and a touch of milk and toffee, which gain ground over the aromas of fruit. Taste Good and embracing attack. Tasty and silky palate in which the fruit takes center stage. Fresh and well balanced expression. Very nice, long and persistent finish, which leaves a nice toasted and spicy aftertaste.

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.
