Altos de Losada Mencía 2019
- Medium bodied
Maybe you met Bierzo wines a little while ago, and are keen to explore the top end of what these unique beauties can be. Or maybe you’re just looking for a whole new world of wine to dip your toe into. Either way, this delightful premium bottling from Spain’s soggy northwest (perhaps more romantically known as ‘green Spain’) is sure to win you over.
The much cooler air blowing in off the Atlantic gives rise to grapes of extreme elegance. It’s still plenty warm over there, so they don’t struggle for ripeness, but the wines tend to be more ethereally complex than your cherry-jam-and-leather Rioja. Think blueberries, raspberries, violets, gravelly paths, incense, plums and herbaceous crunch. The higher acidity will allow this to cellar beautifully too. Plus, it’s all the more versatile and food friendly. Definitely a good one to show your wine-loving pals.
Guía de Vino 2021
“Black fruit, plums and blackberries, floral notes, waxy notes from the crianza. Sweet and spicy woods, liquorice, leather, coconut water and a slightly lactic undertone. Grey mineral impression. Frank and tasty palate, with a very good acid structure and cre amy tannins. Good fruit content, very long.”
