Verónica Ortega Kinki is a barrel red wine made with the Mencía, Doña Blanca, Palomino and Godello varieties by winemaker Verónica Ortega, in the D.O. Bierzo.

Verónica Ortega is an oenologist from Cádiz who, before falling in love with the vine growing qualities of the Bierzo Valley, was trained in great wineries like Clos Erasmus and Alvaro Palacios (in Priorat), Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Comte Armand (in Burgundy) and Domaine Combier (in the North Rhone Valley). She is currently located in the small town of Valtuille de Abajo where she makes white and red wines, using precise methods and little intervention, these are wines that show off the excellence of the area’s ancient varieties like Mencía and Godello.

Verónica Ortega Kinki comes from old vines with an average age of 80 years old that are planted in clay-sandy soils with a high mineral content. By using respectful cultivation methods, the vintner emphasises the importance of vine care and selection in getting the best results. In line with organic farming methods, the work in the vineyard is artisanal and the grapes are manually harvested into 15kg boxes.

In the winery, Verónica Ortega Kinki grapes are destemmed and poured into stainless steel tanks for light, spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and a short maceration of about 10 days. The wine is then aged in a combination of French oak barrels and 800-litre fired clay amphorae.

Verónica Ortega Kinki is a red wine with a light and fresh character to begin with, which then gives way to reveal a marked complexity without diminishing the prominence of the fruit.

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.
