DaTerra Viticultores (Laura Lorenzo) "Portela Do Vento" Tinto 2019Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
100% Mencía for the first time since I started drinking this wine. Foot crushed, fermented and aged in 4000 liter French oak foudre, raised 11 months in the same barrel.
This is typically the wildest, and most rustic of Laura's red wines. A wonderfully ripe, juicy expression this vintage, with a nose of cracked black pepper, plump raspberry and touch of olive. Lively citric acidity makes the wine snappy and lifted, while the palate is grounded by bright berry fruit and spicy, earthy tones. Great slightly chilled.
