Algueira Mencia Ribeira Sacra 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Located on the steep banks of the river Sil in the majestic beauty of Ribeira Sacra lies Adega Algueira. Here the vineyards are on very steep inclines and planted on terraces made from pure schist soils, much like Cote-Rotie or the Mosel. The schist soils, steep inclines and tempering effects of the river provide the perfect micro climate for producing truly special and unique wines. The winery makes a few Mencia-based Ribeira Sacra wines starting with a beautiful, “crunchy” tank-aged wine. They further carry the biodynamic baton in the winery and use foot treading of grapes and spontaneous fermentations to make these pure, natural, mineral-laden and beautifully textured wines. -Winery Website
