What does this wine taste like?
Displaying a dense and dark purple colour, Quite delights us with a smoky nose embellished with aromas of scrubland, ash, blue flowers and deliciously ripe fruits of the forest. It is juicy and fresh in the mouth with a seductive mouthfeel and a degree of acidity which means it flows elegantly on the palate and has a promising future. A splendid blend of minerality and fruitiness, it offers the most pleasant and accessible side of the Mencia variety. Agile, elegant and easy to interpret, it is a wine ready to be admired and enjoyed from the very first moment. Elegant wooden notes from the eight months it spends ageing in wooden vats resonate with every sip alongside an elegantly bitter sensation.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
On drinking, it is easy to appreciate that it has not undergone an excessive extraction process (just a week-long maceration). With an experienced background working at several of the great wineries (such as Clos Erasmus, Álvaro Palacios, Romanée-Conti, and Raúl Pérez), Verónica Ortega is a firm believer that subtlety is a key element behind all great wines. With this in mind, her wines are always aged in large pre-used wooden vats or clay jars, as is the case with Quite.
