Mengoba 'Brezo' Mencia
2019 Mengoba 'Brezo', Mencia, Bierzo, Spain
Gregory Pérez vineyard work is all artisinal, the vines are grown on organic principals with some of Pérez's plots remains one of Spain's few producing vineyard ploughed by a cow. Located in the high attitudes of up to 2500 ft above sea level, Pérez's vineyards are located in a picturesque landscape of wild and natural beauty with pockets of old goblet vines strewn around.
Pérez's entry level Mencia comes from 30-60 year old vines. Absolutely pure and refreshing with a splash of Alicante Bouschet and Godello for added brightness and crunch. Plummy fruits with notes of blood orange and soft cinnamon with very fine tannins.
