Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Mencia
Producer:Avanthia
Region:Spain / Galicia
Alcohol:14.0%

A good-form Mencia from a recently (06) formed Bodegas Avanthia (Gil family+Bodegas Godeval+Jorge Ordonez) in Valdeorras. Round and plush, without crossing into thick and chewy. Fruity with lots of dark berries, medium body, mellow tannins and enough acidity to keep the palate refreshed. Good balance and very drinkable at 14.% alc.
