Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 18.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17
Blackcurrant and mint aromas, youthful and pure. Powerful but not aggressive, with a lovely rusticity and lots of personality. Bramble fruit with aniseed and a silky mid-palate. A textbook Mencía; lovely.
