Description

Grégory Pérez freely admits that you’ve got to have a few loose screws to grow all your grapes in the highest and rockiest sites in Bierzo. Crazy he may be, but we thank him for his efforts! Mengoba’s entry white is a fabulous blend of 85% Godello and 15% Doña Blanca, sourced from a variety of Bierzo’s highland terroirs. The Godello comes mostly from a stony Carracedo site as well as from some sandy loam and clay/limestone plots in Valtuille and Villafranca del Bierzo (at 500-plus metres elevation).

The Doña Blanca hails from similar sites, and also includes some older, gobelet material from the slate soils of Espanillo. The vine age for these plots sits between 20 and 80 years, which is remarkable when you consider the price. The wine ferments with wild yeasts and then raised on its fine lees in tank and large cask for six months.

It’s a mouth-watering, juicy yet pulpy wine with preserved lemon, quinine and crunchy pear fruit and a wonderfully tonic finish. Textural yet thirst-quenching with savoury complexity on the driven finish–this is a joy to drink, and a steal.

Wines of Spain

With 2.9 million acres of land planted in wine grapes, Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation and second largest producer in the world. Many styles of wine are produced in the country most of which are based on native grape varietals.

The two most famous regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero for their Tempranillo production. Rioja Tempranillo (the classic) will be lighter and fresher with red fruit flavours as compared to those from Ribera del Duero that are often deep purple, higher in alcohol with more tannins and intense black fruit character. Rioja is also known for producing Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from the indigenous Viura varietal.

In the Catalonia region, Spain is recognized for making a sparkling wine in the traditional method but using native grape varieties. This is called Cava. Priorat, a subregion within Catalonia specializes in making still red blends of Garnacha, Carignan and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in a bold and full-bodied style. Together with Rioja, wines from Priorat have achieved DOCa/DOQ status signifying their quality.

Sherry is Spain’s famous fortified wine which can either be completely dry, lusciously sweet or somewhere in between. This is made in the southern region of Jerez.

Other notable Spanish wine styles include: Monastrell (AKA. Mataro/Mourvèdre), produced in the Jumilla region and refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo from north western Galacia.
