2022 La Senda '1984' Mencia

100% Mencia from 3 organically farmed old-vine vineyards in Priaranza del Bierzo, in the southwest of the appellation. The vines are 80-95 years old, planted on clay-calcareous soils at 600 meters elevation, among the highest vineyards in Bierzo. The grapes are partially destemmed, macerated for 7-8 days in 3 large oak casks. The wine is then transferred to small French oak barrels to finish primary and malolactic
fermentation, then aged for 8 months. The finished wine is bottled without fining, filtration and only a small addition of sulfur (20ppm)
