Bierzo Mencia Seleccion
Top 5% wine in the UK
From: Spain, Bierzo Mencia DO
By: Víctor & Ángeles @ Legado De Faro Arganza
An old world red from an emerging winegrowing region. Bierzo Mencia Seleccion is created from a ‘secret’ blend of grapes, including the native Mencia. The family vineyard is run by Victor Robla and his wife Angeles, whose family have had vineyards and wineries in the area since the fifteenth century.
The Vinos de Arganza lies within the Bierzo appellation; a historic area with a wine history stretching back to the Greeks and Phoenicians. The region’s vineyards, many of which are over 100 years old, enjoy a warm microclimate, protected from the worst of the elements by mountains. The grapes for the fruity Bierzo Mencia Seleccion are manually harvested and aged for 22 months in French and American oak barrels.
