Cuatro Pasos Black Mencia Bierzo DO

2016

In a Nutshell

Bold and moreish juicy fruit.

Tasting Notes

This wine is intense morello cherry red in colour with a wide rim. It has an excellent blend of red fruit notes, toasted spicy and smoked notes. It is full-bodied and balanced, with well-integrated tannins and a mineral finish.

Production Notes

Grapes were picked by hand in 20 kilogram crates and then selected from a sorting table. They were then destemmed and crushed. Pre-fermentative maceration took place at 12ºC and alcoholic fermentation at 24-26ºC. The wine spent an extended period on the skins post-fermentation and was then aged for 6-7 months in French oak (75%) and American oak (25%) before filtering and bottling.
