Mencia Wine

A grape variety whose origin lies in Salamanca in Bierzo, North West Spain. It’s identical to Portugal’s Jaen variety, and it’s a possibility that Jaen was brought to the Dão in central Portugal by pilgrims on their way back from the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

Wine style for Mencia tends to fall into one of two camps. There’s the aromatic and fruity style (like our Rude Wines example), or the more intense, concentrated examples from low yield vineyards in Bierzo.

In Cuatro Pasos, we’ve a soft, slightly rustic style that’s designed for early drinking rather than long ageing. With its aromas of raspberries and blackberries, juicy acidity that makes for moreish drinking, it’s the perfect introduction to this special Spanish variety.
