Alma Das Donas, Almanova Mencía, Ribeira Sacra, Spain, 2019
(at Weekend Wines Tasting, 25 Jan 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026
From 50-year-old vines, cultivated by hand on steep terraced vineyards, this is a juicy, approachable Mencía. Floral notes, black cherry and blueberry on the nose. Plenty of ripe cherry, strawberry and fresh plum fruit on the palate, with rounded tannins and a savoury touch of balsamic on the finish.
