Algueira Mencía

Algueira Mencía

750 ml | 0 € / 1 l
Disponible

The Algueira Mencia is the reference of the winery Adega Algueira. It is made from 100% Mencía destemmed and fermented grapes, after a short cold pre-fermentation maceration.

It has a cherry red color and medium depth. It is a limpid and bright wine. On the nose, once the reductive notes typical of the variety have disappeared, the explosion of red fruit (raspberry, cherry…) and black berries appears. Together with the milky notes, they reminds us of strawberry lollipops. With very present mineral notes (graphite). The entry on the palate is fresh, but as it travels through the mouth, we find an involving, gourmand wine that reflects the balance between acidity and glycerin.

It pairs very well with beef carpaccio, roast pork and duck magret.

The recommended serving temperature is 14ºC.

The winery

Algueira is a family business that started in 1980 with Fernando and his wife, Ana. They began with a few vineyards, a small winery and a lot of work ahead of them. In 1998 they created the Algueira brand and built a new winery that could face the unique challenges they intended to take. Algueira has grown into an award-winning intentional winery through the years that helped put the Ribera Sacra on the map, both in the wine industry and in wine tourism in Galicia.
