The Bierzo wine region in northwest Spain is not as well known as Rioja but it produces delicious wines from the indigenous Mencia grape. Alvaro Palacios made his name in Priorat where he brought Bordeaux techniques to his vines and resulting wines. He began production in Bierzo over 20 years ago and now his descendants have taken over, and the wines are no less accomplished.

The grapes in the wine are 100% Mencia. The resulting wines are not light, but neither are they overpowering or intense, with defined tannic structure, making them perfect for a range of foods. Mencia wines may initially be austere, but transform with food. There is a very distinct stony minerality on the nose and palate along with aromas and fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry, with dried herbs, mocha, baking spice. Pair with steaks, roasted meats, game, earthy stews.
