12 of 16

Mengoba, Flor de Brezo 2010
Decanter average score:
17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 16.5 Mike Ritchie MW 18
Typical Mencía appeal of flowers and red fruits with an undernote of herbs. Balanced, open, velvety tannins balance a very fruity palate with plummy fruit richness and vibrant, wild berry and bramble fruit notes. Big and powerful wine; well-constructed.
