    Winemaker Notes

    The varietal Mencia, a distinct cousin of Cabernet Franc, comes from the Northwestern region of Spain, in the D.O. of Bierzo. The surrounding mountains allow for a cool growing climate and shelter the region from the harsh effects of the Atlantic ocean. Mencia possesses fragrant aromas of cherry fruit with soft yet rich currant and berry flavors that are silky and supple in the mouth

    Aromas of ripe fruits, raspberries and blackberries lead into flavors of the same in this velvety wine with lively tannins and a long lasting finish.

    Located in the small town of the Province de Leon in Northwestern Spain, Bodega La Serrana is operated by brothers, Victor and Jose Nuñez. In 2000 the two began making table wine and trading it in the market. Production is very small, only one kilo per vine.

    The vineyards enjoy an elevation of between 1,980 and 2,310 feet above sea level. The area experiences very rigorous summers and winters accompanied by the Atlantic climate. August brings temperatures that fluctuate up to 20C allowing grapes to fully ripen around September 10th. Typically, there is little or no rainfall during this time of year. All grapes are hand-picked and quickly taken to the winery.

    Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

    Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
