Dominio do Bibei 'Lalama' Ribeira Sacra

, 2014

Spain Red

Ribeira Sacra 75cl

A cracking wine from this well known winery in Galicia. This is around 90% Mencia and the rest a smorgasbord blend of local varieties grown at different altitudes, on different soils etc. Fermented with indigenous wild yeasts in large old oak and then transferred to 300 litre barriques where it aged for 13 months and then blended and into large oak vats before bottling.
Berry fruits and wild herbs on the nose with some spice, liquorice and just a hint of oak.
Still really fresh on the palate, again the berries and herbs with a touch of meat- like some pan juices, creamy oak and spice, good acidity and soft tannins. Superb and a great value for the complexity. The 2014 a worthy follow-up to the really popular 2013.
