Algueira Ribeira Sacra Mencia 2014 - Sep 2016 Decanter review
The Algueira winery is located in the midst of old chestnut and oak tree forests,on the banks of the river Sil, where the monks built their monasteries back in the 12th Century, A scenario which reflects the calm and peacefulness necessary for the creation of their wines.
After harvest, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with native yeast.
This wine has loads of red fruit aromatics, with flavours of raspberry jam and blueberry. Herbal notes and light balsamic aromas accompany the fruit. This wine is fresh and lively.
