Virgen del Galir, Maruxa Mencia, Valdeorras, Spain, 2019
(at Weekday Wines, 15 Jan 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2023
Part of the CVNE portfolio, this approachable Mencia is made by Jorge Navascues of Contino Rioja, using fruit from terraced schist vineyards. Spicy black cherry aromas, with hints of violets. The juicy palate is well-rounded with soft tannins and ripe black berry-cherry fruit that's balanced by fresh acidity. Plenty of easy-drinking pleasure.
