Description

While the grape variety may not ring any bells, wine enthusiasts will instantly recognise the quality in behind this Cup & Rings Mencia. Originally thought to be a relative of Cabernet Franc, it's actually not, with identical DNA profile to Jaen in Northern Portugal. The Bierzo DO in northwest Spain is where it thrives though, the Old Bush Vines that winemaker Norrel Robertson MW coaxes so many great wines from, giving yet another magnificent wine experience in this exceptional 2014 vintage.

Smells

An explosion of berry fruit characters with raspberry, cherry, prune and earthy notes of spice and liquorice.

Tastes

Full-bodied and stylish with immaculate balance and remarkable complexity, a bed of fine tannins carries this to an irresistible conclusion. An unoaked style of wine to highlight the pure Mencia character, this is a unique and characterful red wine from the Spanish/Scottish master!
