Jose Antonio Garcia Mencia, "Unculin", 2015

19.00

José Antonio was born in Barcelona, but his mother, a native of Valtuille De Abajo and his father, a native of Corullon, are long time vineyard owners in Bierzo. José Antonio spent his formative years in Barcelona working in the restaurant trade before returning to recuperate his family's vineyard holdings in Bierzo. Working out of a small winery in Valtuille, José Antonio crafts his wines to reflect the different parcels and terroirs of the region. All work is done with minimal intervention and with the intention of focusing the development of the differentiation of the terroirs in Valtuille. He owns 22 hectares of only old vines between 500 and 600 meters elevation. The different parcels that José Antonio is working are divided into stylistically distinctive wines. This 100% Mencia wine is a fresh, vin de soif style Bierzo from various parcels around the village of Valtuille de Abajo. 70% of the grapes are destemmed. Fermentation with indigenous yeast. 4 months aging on fine lees in stainless steel tanks. Wonderfully fresh and straight-up drinkable. Lots of minerality and plenty of bright juicy fruit that plays nicely with some more savory, roasted notes.
