Beautiful expression of the native mencía grape
Refined oak aging of 12 months
Delicious with poultry, white meat or just like that

Elegant and refined from Galicia

Elegant red wine from Galicia. Bright red in colour, intense in scent with ripe red fruit, vanilla, oak and spicy, smoky nuances. The taste structure is fresh, juicy evolution with light tannins in the aromatic aftertaste. Great with not too spicy dishes from the grill or from the oven.

Vino from Bierzo

Manuel Mendez, with his light-colored, red Alma de Autor, makes a beautiful Galician wine with the finesse that is so characteristic of the Atlantic viticulture in northern Spain. Although still relatively unknown, Monterrei is a rapidly emerging denomination of origin in Galicia with high-altitude vineyards.

Nearly 70% of the production is white wine, but here on the border between Atlantic and Mediterranean influence, the potential for quality red wine is very promising. That shows Manuel. For his Alma de Autor, he selects about 60% mencía and 40% arauxa (the local name for tempranillo) from a plot with 50-year-old vines.

The grapes are picked by hand only in the second week of October, then briefly soaked with the skins and fermented using the 'wild' yeasts that are found on the skins of the grapes, among other things. The wine is then aged for 12 months in small wooden barrels of French and American oak.

Alma de Autor has the finesse of a good Pinot Noir or Spätburgunder, smells and tastes seductive and has a pleasant freshness. Combines nicely with grilled meat and chicken from the oven, but also tastes good just outside the meal.
