Silice Viticultores - Tinto 2018
(Ribeira Sacra, Galicia)
From perhaps our current favourite wine region in Spain, this Mencia is a real charmer. Lightly extracted, wildly floral, notes of geraniums, rose petals, alongside bright red fruits and a mild savoury and mineral edge. Some people call Mencia Spain's 'Pinot Noir,' and it's easy to see why in this stunning wine.
Silice Viticultores is a collaboration between three friends who sought to unite old parcels in the canyons of the mythical Sil river. Extreme viticulture, jaw-dropping landscapes, and fanatical dedication yield some of Spain's most exciting wines.
