Madai 'Origen'

Mencia, 2018

Spain Red

Bierzo 75cl

This is a great value Mencia.
Raspberry and cherry on the nose with hints of almond and violets, a touch of dried herb too.
From old vines and aged 6 months on lees. Juicy and bright on the nose and palate-with lovely sweet red berry and cherry fruit. Crunchy and fresh it has ripe tannins and a lovely sweet fruit finish with again a hint of almond and spice and dried herb.
Too many Mencia based wines are tight and reductive, but this is really appealing. Would be good with a variety of tapas, and was excellent with a moderately spicy chicken curry with a spicy okra dish. Best served cool.
