Mencos Crianza 2009

Mencos Crianza

Mencos comes from a beautiful parcel of vines aging an average 35 years on the south side of the Ebro River in the village of Torremontalvo. This vineyard, with chalky clay over gravel, is well suited to the tempranillo grape.

Vinification The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and then aged 12 months in old French and American oak barrels that were previously used for the Conde de Hervías.

Tasting Notes Spicy wood tones mingle with ripe elegant violet fruit. A wine with good length in a classic yet modern framework.
