Why do we love this wine?

This is one of those wines you can take to your sommelier friend’s dinner with utter confidence - arrogance even. Because you’ll know you’ve got your mitts on something that you don’t see much of in Australia, is so hot right now (Hansel-style) and is at once challenging as it is immensely enjoyable. The trivia you’ll need to reinforce your posturing: it’s made from 95% Mencía (‘men-thee-ah’), the other 5% indigenous Spanish varietals; the grapes are from an ancient, 100+ year old vineyard; it’s from Bierzo, in Spain’s northwest.

Other than that, pop the cork, give it some air and enjoy tasting it evolve. It’s a fascinating light-but-intense variety, and this example has everything from tar and roses to potpourri and Indian spices happening. Its lovely medium weight and crunchy acidity, draped with dripping cherry juiciness, ensure that you’re the life of the party.
