Hombros is made from old vine Mencía planted between 50 and 100 years ago in a series of mid-altitude plots (600 – 700 metres above sea level) above the village of Valtuille de Arriba.
Freshness and structure are the wine’s key characteristics. Following a manual harvest, the grapes undergo a pre-fermentative maceration before fermentation with native yeasts. The wine is then left in contact with its lees for up to two months before a delicately controlled barrel ageing to ensure perfect harmony between wine and wood.
Hombros has a wonderful nose of wild blackberries and blueberries interwoven with subtle notes of summer flowers. Excellent balance between mature tannins, lively acidity and the depth of the fruit. Harmonious and long finish.
