Wine Note

Madai 'Origen'

This is a great value Mencia. Moving quickly from the 2015 vintage to 2016. Raspberry and cherry on the nose with hints of almond and violets. 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. Just a touch livelier and fresher than the 2014 with a lovely redcurrant/cranberry finish.
Too many Mencia based wines are tight and reductive, but this is really appealing. Would be good with a variety of tapas.
