Adega Algueira 'Mencia', Ribeira Sacra, Spain, 2020
An absolute delight of a wine, textbook Mencia, the nose is fresh and fragrant, with aromas of plums, berries and cherries. The palate is juicy and lively, with a lovely touch of herbal freshness, and a hint of sourness on the finish. Just delicious – this is what we’ll be drinking all summer.
Pairs well with grilled meats, slow cooked meats, cheese
“Bright juicy fruits…a fine example. Cherry and raspberry fruits - supple, juicy and moreish with a touch of glacé cherry and confit strawberry on the finish"
Leslie Williams - Irish Examiner
