Raul Perez Bierzo 'Ultreia de Valtuille' 2015

Located in northwestern Spain, Raul Perez is red wine royalty in Bierzo and Ribeira Sacra, crafting a range of easy drinking village wines, all the way up to hard hitting, single-vineyard standouts. ‘Ultreia de Valtuille’ is a Mencia dominant blend, whole-cluster fermented with native yeast, followed by one year of aging in barrel; dark fruited, with ample herb undertones and a long finish. Delicious with lamb and/or game!

Wine Type







Gripping herbal red specialty of Galicia traditionally compared to – but not related to – Cabernet Franc. Its lively acidity and tangy pepper-tinged fruit give it great energy and a capacity to age.
