CVNE, Cune Mencía, Valdeorras, Spain 2022
(at Weekday Wines Tasting, 22 Jul 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2025
Best known for its Riojas, CVNE has headed to Valdeorras to make this juicy, young, unoaked Mencía. Vibrant cherries and ripe red berries on the nose and palate, where soft tannins are paired with good acidity. A hint of smoky bacon on the finish, plus a bitter chicory note to balance the ripeness. An easydrinking crowd-pleaser for summer barbecues.
