Godelia Selección Mencía

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

The interpretation of a great Mencía in the Camino de Santiago. Only a few are part of the elite.

A wine that is born from a very high standard selection of grapes from hundred-year-old vines in our plots and estates at higher altitudes, on steep slopes and facing south in slate soils. It is our most select Mencía, with a wonderful balance of fruit, terroir, and oak. It is only made those years in which we feel we have grapes magical enough for it. A unique production with the body and soul of El Bierzo.

Tasting notes

A wine with a great personality, with a complex, elegant, and very concentrated nose, underscored by the notes of ripe red fruits, flowers, and orange peel, wrapped in mineral, spiced, and fine wood nuances. Great balance between fruit, terroir, and oak.
In the mouth it is soft, very elegant and silky with sweet and gentle tannins.

Recommendations

Consume at 14-16°C. Ideal with game with mushrooms or a good beef steak.
