Ronsel Do Sil, Vel'Uveyra Mencia, Ribeira Sacra, Spain 2016

15.95

A bright and juicy biodynamic Mencia from the spectacular region of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, where the vines are grown on steep terraces known as ‘bancalas’, which were originally built by the Romans. The wine is young and fruit forward, with no oak flavour, because it was aged in huge 5,000 litre barrels, so the effect was to mollify not season the wine. If you like the wines from Fedellos do Couto and Envinate, then this will certainly appeal as it favours a similar ‘minimal intervention’ policy (no pesticides), lighter extraction and an alcohol volume of just 12.5% alc. Galicia’s answer to artisanal, small-batch Beaujolais. Drink now-2020.
