In ALGUEIRA CARRAVEL, we find the grapes of our best plots of Doade, fermenting each one of them separately and assembling after the ageing. We can say that it is a wine of exceptional vintages in our plots. In this case, the Mencía 100% is made either in steel or in barrel, with or without scrap, depending mainly on the plot of origin. Its ageing takes place in barrels of different volumes for more than 12 months. It has a garnet red colour and middle layer, balsamic aromas and red fruit (wild strawberry). It emphasizes the roundness in the mouth with a balance between alcohol-acidity-tannins. The minerality of the area gives us a very long wine in the mouth.
