Introducing the 2018 Bodega Mengoba Alicante Bouschet Mencia, a remarkable red wine from the prestigious wine region of Bierzo, Spain. This wine exudes elegance and complexity, showcasing the true potential of the 2018 vintage. With a deep red color that catches the eye, this wine is a true gem.

The nose of the 2018 Bodega Mengoba Alicante Bouschet Mencia is subtle yet enticing. It offers a delicate bouquet of aromas that intertwine seamlessly. As you take your first sip, you'll be delighted by the faint herbal notes that dance on the palate. These flavors are accompanied by a pungent, almost salty undertone, adding a unique touch to the overall experience.

Crafted with utmost precision, this wine went through a meticulous fermentation process in 5,000-liter oak vats at low temperatures. Indigenous yeasts were used to enhance the authenticity of its character. Following this, the wine matured for one year in the oak vats, allowing it to develop its depth and complexity. Finally, it spent six months in stainless steel, adding the finishing touches and polishing the edges.

The result is a powerful yet sleek wine that captivates the senses. The integration of the two grape varietals, Mencia and Alicante Bouschet, is masterfully achieved, with each grape improving the other's qualities. The 2018 Bodega Mengoba Alicante Bouschet Mencia is a testament to the winemaker's skill and dedication to producing exceptional wines.
