Made from 90% Mencía, with Palomino, Doña Blanca, and Alicante Bouschet, these vines are located in several plots with an average age of at least 50 years. Vinification is 50% whole cluster fermentation and 10 months aging in clay amphorae. This a dark-fruited and savory dry red made with a touch of white grapes. Pair with a smoky chorizo.
Legendary Galician winemaker Raul Perez does it again with this Mencia dominant blend. 80% of whole clusters are used in 'Ultreia Saint Jacques,' which adds texture and weight to this seriously elegant wine. Drink one now, lay one down.
Expansive, spice- and smoke-accented aromas of red/blue fruit preserves, incense and five-spice powder, along with cola and mineral flourishes.
The fusion of a traditional native varietal and the rich slate soil of a century-old single vineyard. Harvested by hand and aged for 12 months in French and Caucasian 300-liter oak barrels.
