Mencia Xastra, Prior de Panton, Bierzo, North West Spain, 2014
A light to medium bodied wine produced mainly from the Mencia grape, full flavoured and persistent on the finish this is a great summer red.
Oenologist and wine maker Ruben Moure plies his craft at the Prior de Panton Estate in Bierzo, North West Spain. The vineyards themselves are located on sloped terraces at around 700m above sea level which allows his wines to take on their fresh elegant character whilst maintaining a high degree of concentration and complexity.
On the nose, aromas of fresh fruits and flowers as well as mineral notes stand out. Full of flavour, fresh and elegant with a persistent aftertaste.
