Vinos Guerra 1879 Mencia

Red Wine

Vinos Guerra 1879 Mencia is a cherry red colour with a purple rim and red and black fruit with bramble notes on the aroma.  Fresh fruit and a wonderful lift with minerality and a touch of herbal notes on the finish.

 

Made from 100% Mencia grapes, an indigenous red grape variety, the bunches were hand-harvested from older bush vines.  Cold maceration for 3–5 days, then fermented in concrete tanks for 20 days, followed by another 8 days for malolactic fermentation.  Ageing occurs for 4 months in French oak barrels.

 

An historic winery founded in 1879, Vinos Guerra is still making wines with vines that are 50+ years old, from organically grown dry-farmed vineyards.  In addition, Guerra controls a third of all the vineyard land in Bierzo and only makes wine with the best 10% of the grapes harvested.
