2010 Diego de Lemos Mencia Ribeira Sacra

SKU #1076972

Esther Teixero Lemos and her sons are carrying on their family's tradition of cultivating mencia vines on steep, terraced hillsides along the Minho River in the Ribeira Sacra village of Pincelo. Their 5 hectares of vineyards are certified organic by the Consello Regulador da Galicia, a step which the family was compelled to take after seeing the effect of herbicides on the region's vineyards. This wine shows darker fruit aromas, which carry over to the palate, while maintaining freshness and lightness in the mouth. This would be terrific with a hearty soup of beans, leafy greens, and whatever varieties of cooked and cured pork you have handy! While delicious now, this wine will likely continue to develop nicely over the next five years.
