MENCIA, Merayo, 2013


Product Description

This red has all the fresh, perfumed characters and ripe red fruit typical of Mencia. Juicy red fruits, notes of violets and spices. Rich, fresh and creamy with good length on the finish.

The Merayo family have been growing grapes for generations in Bierzo and one look at Pedro’s immaculate vineyards suggests he knows what he’s doing. Apparently a number of other well-known local producers think so too and are passing off Pedro’s vineyards as their own on their websites! The bulk of Pedro’s 25 hectares of ancient vines were inherited from his father but Bodegas Merayo and the new winery (housed in a converted apple store) were established as recently as 2010. The combination of Pedro’s meticulous viticulture and the wine making expertise of the young, dynamic Fermin Uria is- in our opinion- already producing spectacular results.
