Losada Crianza, Bierzo

The Mencía grapes, farmed in an organic manner (Losada describe this as sustainable) are sourced from managed old vineyards on gentle, south-facing slopes. The soils are primarily clay in these vineyards which are located close to the winery between Cacabelos and Villafranca. After the malolactic fermentation, it spends about a year in a mixture of French and American oak barrels. A wine that shows the softer, juicy side of the Mencía grape; the delicious ripe fruit is reminiscent of cherry and other red berries; it finishes on a smoky note.
