Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a red wine produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba in Carracedelo, D.O. Bierzo.

 

Bodegas y Viñedos Mengoba is a project lead by the renowned oenologist Gregory Pérez. Always with respect for the vines and their sustainability, the winery has become one of the greatest symbols of El Bierzo.

 

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a wine made mainly from Mencía, from an 80-year-old vineyard located at 700 metres of altitude in Espanillo. It is planted on decomposed slate soils with sandy areas. It also has a small percentage of Alicante Bouschet and Godello. They are manually harvested and placed in boxes. Once destemmed and crushed, they pass on to 2500 litre wooden foudres, where they go through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. They will remain in these foudres for 11 months before the wine is bottled, without filtering and with a slight clarification.

 

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a blunt, rustic wine with a lot of personality. An authentic Mencía, very well complemented by the freshness of the Alicante Bouschet and the Godello.

Pictures and situation Mengoba
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.
