Producer Summary:We found a real treasure in Valdesil, kept safe since 1880 - the oldest Godello clone in the world. Having gained international recognition for its white wines the region has also traditionally grown Mencia, a red variety. In this cool climate, Mencia wines develop a very characteristic and subtle flavour.
Short Tasting Note:The violet-tinted cherry-red colour, ripe fruit and liquorice aromas, softness and length make this wine the most classic Mencía in Galicia.
Long Tasting Note:For over fifteen years Valderroa has offered tremendous value for money, whilst vintage after vintage it has proven to be one of the finest reds in Galicia. The violet-tinted cherry-red colour, ripe fruit and liquorice aromas, softness and length make this wine the most classic Mencía in Galicia. It is the result of particularly careful winemaking designed to bring out the full character of the grape.
Awards:2018 Wines from Spain Awards Distinction (2017 Vintage), 2015 IWC Commended (2013 Vintage), 2015 DWWA Bronze (2013 Vintage)
Press Recommendations:"Tangy, cherry-like freshness, succulent berry fruit, a touch of violet-like perfume and a crunchy feel. It is the kind of wine that fills the same refreshing-red role as a good Beaujolais from a top village (cru) or a cabernet franc from the Loire, and like those, its made for a plate of salty charcuterie." (The Guardian, May 2014)
