At ALGUEIRA CARRAVEL, we use the grapes from our finest Doade plots. Each plot's grapes are fermented separately and then blended after aging. This special wine originates from exceptional vintages in our plots. Our Mencía 100% is produced in either steel or barrel, with or without sediment, depending mostly on the plot of origin. It is aged in barrels of various sizes for more than 12 months. It possesses a garnet red color with a medium layer, balsamic aromas, and red fruit notes (wild strawberry). The wine's roundness in the mouth is noteworthy, striking a balance between alcohol, acidity, and tannins. The area's minerality lends significant length to the wine's finish.
