2016 Merayo Aquiana Bierzo
The Merayos exclusively cultivate the grape varieties for which their region Bierzo, far too unknown in this country, stands: Godello and above all Mencia. Bierzo is located in the northwest of Spain, just in Castile-Léon, but already borders on Galicia. Mencia is considered a little bit as Spain's answer to Pinot Noir and indeed one can make very elegant and polished wines from it, far away from any cliché. What can already be heard in her base wine can be seen in full size in the Mencia Aquiana - up to 100 year old vines, barrique ageing, small quantities.
And how does it taste?
Intense aromas - dark cherry, blueberry, paired with balsamic notes and black pepper. The wood ageing is present, but never kitschy. It gives the powerhouse Aquiana a suitable frame with soft tannins.
