The nose of the 2013 El Castro de Valtuille had a strong vegetal strike, perhaps because in 2013 it was produced with the fruit from their two coldest vineyards in Rapolao and La Vitoriana, and they used 50% (or even more) full clusters. Even though the soils are clay-based, it seems to have provided for a very cold profile, reminiscent of a Loire red. The texture is quite lean, alcohol is moderate (lower than 13%) and the tannins are very fine. This has a strong personality, it might not please everybody, and I think it should develop nicely in bottle. 14,000 bottles.

Description

It is often said that Mencia has the fruitiness of a Pinot Noir and the freshness of a Shiraz.
This cuvée bears the name of the village where the vines are grown. It is a selection of centennial vines.
El Castro is the castle.

Vinification

14 months of French new oak barrels, 1/3 of which are new.

Tasting analysis

The perfect example of a Mencia wine.
Mineral, red fruit aromas, a Burgundian touch; discreet at first on the palate, then it reveals itself in all its depth and magnitude. A continental style-wine, ripe and meaty.
The oak touch is really well integrated in the wine.

Storage potential

A wine that will get riper with age. 7years of potential at least.

Serving

Serve at 18°C, in a Burgundy glass.
