Browse by Grape - Mencia (Jaen)

Mencía (“Men-thee-ah”) is a medium-bodied red wine grape that produces high quality wines with floral and red fruit flavors. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s not surprising, Mencía only grows in Spain and Portugal on the Iberian peninsula. What makes Mencía special is it has shown the ability to age like other fine wines and it offers rich aromas in the glass

Quinta des Maias TINTO 2017
Portugal :: Dão
Mencia (Jaen)
Body: c - Medium
Ready to drink

Red wines from the Dao should always demonstrate a certain succulence from a combination of altitude and granitic soils, but Maias Tinto goes the extra mile. At these even higher vineyards (around 650m), Jaen (Tinta Mencia) captures in the glass delicious crunchy fruit in this medium bodied wine.

Maias is the local name for the Weaver's Broom plant which surrounds the estate here (its yellow flowers blossom in May in this part of Dao, hence its nickname - Maio is the word for May).

Gaba do Xil MENCIA 2014
Spain
Mencia (Jaen)

Floral and perfumed, refined and elegant, expressing the freshness of the 2016 vintage. It has that spicy and herbal twist not that far from some Gamays or Cabernet Francs, with the Galician signature of forest floor, bay leaf and nettle, and with very good complexity.

Intense red fruit with some lovely balsamic notes, black olives and minerality held up by a refreshing acidity.

Palacio de Canedo PICANTAL 2011
Spain :: Bierzo
Mencia (Jaen)
Body: e - Full
Drink now, but will keep

The gout-de-terroir is strong in this wine. The ageing on its lees in oak is only used to enhance the wine, make it bigger and more intense without interfering with the grape variety’s characteristics. The wine is cherry red with a violet rim and a thick body. Extremely elegant nose with hints of chocolate and liquor integrated with the Mencía’s red fruit. The palate is solid, round, full bodied and, at the same time, silky and full of fruit. The Burt Reynolds 70's Porno tribute label is a triumph!
