Diego Losada Bierzo Tinto 'Vindemiatrix' 2018

Diego Losada, a former organic chemistry student, took to the vine and pursued a non-interventionist mentality towards farming. He cultivates 5 hectares of bush vines in the heart of Galicia. ‘Vindemiatrix’ is a Mencia dominant blend, destemmed and vinified in concrete. Fresh, earthy, and noted with flavors of smoke and spice; serve slightly chilled with grilled meats or veggies!
$19750ml

Mencia

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.
