Algueira Carravel is a red wine produced by the Algueira winery in Ribera Sacra.

It is a single variety of Mencia  from vineyards planted on very steep slopes, with an incline of 85% rising on the banks of the River Sil. The floors are shale, very similar to slate, this laminate mineral gives the wine a very special mineral character. The vineyards, protected by the river and slopes, enjoy a Mediterranean microclimate with Atlantic influences. A climate warmer than the rest of Galicia. Winters are cold and rainy, but the summers are very hot with temperatures that can reach 45 ° C.
The harvest is done manually in boxes of 20 Kg. They benefit from the sun and heat, so the grape preserves maximum freshness. The grapes are trodden in the traditional manner, before fermentation in stainless steel tanks with native yeast. Algueira Carravel is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
An elegant, fresh and very mineral Mencia.

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
