|From visionary winemaker Raúl Pérez|
|From La Vitoriana, the most beautiful cru in Valtuille|
|Beautiful young with grilled meat, matured perfectly with game|
Mencia & Bastardo
Deep red in colour, refined in scent with floral nuances, herbs, flint and some oak. The elegant flavor structure ends aromatically with mild tannins. Complex red wine, drunk young, great with spicy lamb or beef; delicious with game after a few years.
Raul perez with his beautiful wines from Bierzo
If there is anyone who has put Bierzo's unique terroir on the map, it is Raúl Pérez. In his native village of Valtuille de Abajo, in addition to his iconic Ultreia series, he also makes this beautiful series La Vizcaína. These are the bottlings of the crus around Valtuille, each one from at least 50 year old vines.
La Vitoriana is considered the most beautiful cru of Valtuille. The vineyard was planted in 1890 and has a total of about four hectares, of which 1.8 is owned by Raúl. La Vitoriana has a compact clay soil and is planted with mainly mencia and bastardo plus a mix of garnacha tintorera, doña blanco and palomino.
The vinification process is broadly the same for all wines from the La Vizcaína series. After the harvest follows a fermentation with whole bunches of grapes in oak barrels. Characteristic is the fairly long soaking on the skins that Raúl gives the wine afterwards, about sixty to ninety days. After this, the wine matures for another year in used wooden barrels. Bottling takes place without filtering or clarification.
The end result is difficult to put into words. Pure, intense, powerful and gossamer at the same time. A truly stunning Mencia blend that you absolutely must experience. Drink it between two and ten years after the harvest, preferably with a nice meat or game dish.
