|From Bierzo pioneer and top winemaker Raúl Pérez|
|The most ripe and full-bodied La Vizcaína|
|Nice with grilled meat or spicy stews|
Mencia, Bastardo & Garnacha Tintora
Deep red in color with some development; powerful scent with ripe red fruit, spices and leather nuances. The flavor structure is full, powerful and balanced with mild tannins and a persistent aromatic aftertaste. Complex wine, great with rich dishes of beef or game on spicy dishes.
The uniqueness of Bierzo
Distinctive, idiosyncratic winemaker Raúl Pérez enjoys worldwide cult status for his intuitive and minimalist view on wine making plus his pioneering work in his native Bierzo region. Raúl was one of the first to express Bierzo's unique terroir in his wines.
He does this, among other things, in this special series of La Vizcaína: all impressive terroir wines from at least 50 years old crus vines around the village of Valtuille de Abajo. In La Poulosa vineyard, planted in 1940, Raúl owns two hectares of mencia, bastardo and garnacha tintorera grapes. Although not certified, Raúl cultivates the vineyards organically.
Since Raúl's main goal is to express the grapes and their terroir, he keeps the interventions in the cellar to a minimum. After fermentation (largely with whole bunches) and a long skin soaking, the wine is aged for a year in used barrels made of French oak. He bottles La Poulosa without clarifying or filtering
In the bottle you will find a pure, authentic Bierzo bursting with red fruit, spiciness and minerality. La Poulosa is the warmest cru, for that reason this La Vizcaína is also the most mature and round of the four and relatively young accessible. Preferably drink it at the table, for example with a spicy stew or grilled meat.
