Castro Candaz Mencía is a red wine produced by Raúl Pérez from his project in D.O. Ribeira Sacra, Castro Candaz.

 

Castro Candaz Mencía is one of the wines made by Raúl Pérez with his good friend, oenologist Rodrigo Méndez, within the collection of Castro Candaz. The aim of the wines of Castro Candaz is to show the potential of the traditional varieties of Ribeira Sacra, mainly the Mencía, and to reflect in their wines the place where they are born.

 

Castro Candaz Mencía is a wine made from 100% Mencía . Harvest is performed by hand and the winemaking process is carried out in the traditional way, applying minimum intervention. This way, they seek the maximum expression of the variety and the character of the land where the vines grow. Once the alcoholic fermentation has finished,it is aged for 6 months in 500-litre used barrels.

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.
