This rich, warming red is made from vineyards that lie on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela in Bierzo, in the north-west of Spain. The vines here are very old, some over 100 years, which produce especially intense and concentrated wines. The indigenous grape variety of Mencia offers an enchanting rich black cherry and herbal character.
Sweet tannin with well balanced acidity, rich red fruits, leather, cinnamon and hints of sweet spices. Perfect with rustic and slow roasted lamb with earthy flavours. The perfect red for winter.
