Review

This magical wine is made with the produce of the Espanillo vineyard, the jewel in the crown of the Mengoba winery. These vines are over 80 years old, high up in the mountains growing in rocky soils made up of mainly fragmented and decomposed slate. Hand-crafted viticulture at work in this oxen-ploughed vineyard brings together biodynamic philosophy with Mencia, Alicante Bouschet, Estaladiña and Godello grapes. This wine then ages for eleven months in a 400-litre French oak foudre. It is not filtered.

Mengoba Mencía de Espanillo is a direct and rustic wine with a strong character. A true Mencia wine, well complemented with the freshness of the Alicante Bouschet and Godello grapes. A fragrant wine with notes of blue flowers, bilberries, cherries, and aromatic herbs, mixed with spicy and smoky hints. It has a medium-bodied palate with the freshness of red fruit, and makes for a long-lasting, lively and tantalizing wine.

  • Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC

Mencia con pretensiones

Estilo más robusto y concentrado de lo habitual. No estoy seguro de que la Mencía digiera bien este tratamiento.

Very nice Mencia

This wine will not disappoint you. It is very well done! A very good Mencia, with quite some complexity. Good length.

Buen Mencía.

No es el tipo de vino que suelo beber habitualmente, sin embargo ha sido una agradable sorpresa. Vino muy equilibrado y totalmente recomendable.
