Mencía (similar to Cabernet Franc) is the indigenous variety of grape in the northwest of Spain,
its origins date back over a thousand years.
The character of the grape makes wines produced from them well worth discovering. They have
an intense raspberry color and a penetrating, fruity aroma overlaid with a delicate floral scent.
They also have a high alcohol content, good acidity, age well and have a characteristically velvet finish.
This grape produces wines that demonstrate all the strength and expressiveness of the land it comes from.
They are balanced and well-structured, with a full-bodied, lengthy aftertaste.
The distinguishing feature of mencía grapes is their aging ability.
