9.25₣ (Exc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Switzerland
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The young Mencía 2018 Castro Candaz feels a bit closed and reductive. It comes from different vineyards in the zones of Chantada and Quiroga-Bibei, and it fermented destemmed (the only one in the project) in stainless steel and was was bottled unoaked. It has black fruit and notes of tempera paint, licorice and meat and a slight bitterness in the finish. This feels a bit animal-like; let's see how it develops in bottle. 3,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 6 months in 500 liter French oak demi-muids.
