Adega Algueira 'Carravel', Ribeira Sacra, Spain, 2017
From Algueira’s best plots in Doade, the grapes are fermented in both stainless steel and oak barrels (up to 24 months) according to each separate plot. It’s 100% Mencia, grown on slate soils which takes the grape up a level. Aromas of wild berry and balsamic lead to a palate of juicy cassis and blackberry fruit. Fine, grippy tannins and fresh acidity provide a lovely mouthfeel and superb length.
Pairs well with grilled meats, slow cooked meats, cheese
