Fento Wines - Ribeira Sacra O Estranxeiro 2019Bonhomie
20-80 year old Mencía vines planted to granitic and slate soils in the Ribeiras do Miño, and 50 year old Mencia vines planted in Amandi along the Sil in a warmer sub-climate. Hand-harvested, fully de-stemmed, and soaked on the skins briefly before a 20 day fermentation in chestnut foudres with native yeasts.
Bright, popping acidity, vegetal, potpourri, nice concentration of ripe dark berries - lifted, lovely aromatics, soft full texture, really elegant. SILKY and balanced
