There was a creamy and lactic note in the nose of the 2017 El Castro de Valtuille Mencía Joven, despite the fact that it only matured between three and five months in used 5,000-liter oak vats. It just added to the complexity of this young and interesting young Mencía, which is expressive and had a soft palate with fine tannins and a thread of freshness going through its core. They did a shorter maceration because the year was warmer, and it resulted in a very balanced and fresh red, more about finesse. It has old-vine complexity and represents a modern, clean side of Bierzo at a very, very affordable price point. Some 35,000 bottles produced.

Description

It is often said that Mencia has the fruitiness of a Pinot Noir and the freshness of a Shiraz.
This young (joven) wine was made with the same care as the Raul Pérez's other cuvées but comes from younger vines.

Vinification

Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks so as to preserve the primary aromas of the grape.

Tasting analysis

Red and black fruit, with a hint of terroir. An impressive quality-price relation.
The style of this wine is rather continental, with its notes of ripe fruit, but it is also meaty and fresh.
Well-structured. Persistent finish.

Storage potential

5 years.

Serving

Serve cool in the summer (15°C) a little warmer in the autumn and winter (18°C).
