2013 Casa Beade "Ladeiras de Paderne" Mencía VdT Betanzos

SKU #1249781

This micro-production Galician red hails from the northernmost region for growing grapes not only in Galicia but in all Spain. It is fascinating: slightly rustic, with flavors of dark cherries showing dusty tannins and a decidedly old-fashioned flair (think top quality, traditional Dolcetto d'Alba). Pair with all types of hearty stews (vegetarian or Spanish style: brimming with lacon and chorizo) or a charcuterie plate. 11.5% ABV. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

This is a bit of an oddball of a wine, but I was completely swept up in its intriguing complexity. A touch wild with a hint of rusticity, sure. Bordering on natural, yes. For some this might be a deal breaker, but the Casa Beade walks that tight rope, keeping it all together for a wonderfully complex and gastronomic wine. All you need is a good plate of charcuterie and some Manchego cheese.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
