Ultreia Mencía 2020
15.90€ (Inc. VAT bot. 75 cl.) / Spain
Ultreia Mencía is a red wine made mainly with Mencía grapes by the Raúl Pérez winery and vineyards in the Bierzo DO.
The grapes come from old vineyards located in Valtuille de Abajo and Salas de los Barrios.
The vineyards are planted in soils with a predominance of clayey soils and, to a lesser extent, stony and sandy soils.
The grapes are harvested by hand at the optimum point of ripeness. On arrival at the winery, the grapes are partially separated from the stems and very long macerations of approximately 60-90 days are carried out, without temperature control and with little extraction work. After vinification, the wine is aged for 12 months in 2- and 3-year-old French oak barrels. At the end, this wine is neither filtered nor clarified for bottling.
Ultreia Mencía is all finesse, elegance and high complexity. It stands out for its floral and fruity aromas, spicy and mineral notes. It stands out for its good acidity, with tannins that are well present without being aggressive and it is easy to drink.
A red wine that reflects the place it comes from.
The word ultreia is of Latin origin. This is how the pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago used to greet each other, and it means forward. This is the origin of one of the most popular and appreciated wine collections of Bodega Raúl Pérez, of which this excellent wine is a part.
Ultreia Mencía is a wine of great purity elaborated by the prestigious oenologist and viticulturist Raúl Pérez, and which faithfully represents the Mencía grape variety from Bierzo.
At a gastronomic level, it is the perfect accompaniment to dishes such as grilled red meats, game dishes and sausages.
