Well I loved the Mengoba Brezo Tinto at first site and looks like the Blanco is better still. Made from Gordello and Dona Blanca, this is a seriously textural and silky white with a complex array of flavours that remind me a fair bit of a decent Gin. All of these factors make is an all to easy to guzzle white that really should be in a one litre bottle.
A beautiful collection of old, high altitude, goblet trained, organically grown plots in Bierzo are the key to the quality of Mengoba’s wines. Two levels of estate wine then single vineyard releases really capture the essence of the region. Both reds from Mencia and whites from Gordello and Dona Blanco are seriously impressive.
Continental climate and high altitude vineyards combined with schist laden soils means these wines are elegant, fine and perfumed. Easily some of the best wines in Spain.
An unheralded white for Galicia in Spain. It offers wonderful silky texture and a beautiful array of sweet aromas. It is a variety that you do need to know.
