Technical Details

Description

Casar de Burbia Mencía 2017 is a 100% old-vine Mencía from a selection of different vineyard plots. The grapes from each plot are fermented separately before winemaker Isidro Fernandez decides the optimum blend for that year’s vintage.

Once blended, the wine sits on its lees for two months before being racked off into used French oak barrels where it ages for a further 10-12 months depending on the vintage.

The wine is clean and brilliant purple in colour. Initial aromas of raspberries and cherries combine well with caramel notes from the wood. Chewy and tannic on the palate, it has good acidity which will help it age further in the bottle for a few years. The wine has a long finish with an agreeable, slightly powdery astringency.
