Algueira's entry-level Mencía is drawn from the Estate's younger Mencía vines, which cling to Ribeira Sacra's precipitous slate and shist slopes that rise from to the river Sil. Where Algueira’s premium releases are whole bunch fermented and aged in oak, this the grapes for this early release are destemmed and raised in stainless steel. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, with 15 to 20 days of maceration. 


The idea is to craft and immediately enjoyable introduction to Algueira’s Ribeira Sacra Mencia.

Reviews

“The textbook varietal 2019 Mencía shows the rustic personality of the region through the grapes from different places. It has a moderate 13% alcohol and very good freshness for a grape that does not have very high acidity. It's nicely textured, pleasant and juicy, not terribly complex but really pleasant.”
