"The young, unoaked and juicy Mencía 2016 Castro Ventosa, in a tall Bordeaux bottle with a pink and garnet label, like all wines, was harvested throughout the season, some before and others after the rain, as this is the biggest volume wine of the winery. The nose is very clean and expressive, with a Rhôneish feel to it. The palate is juicy, with unnoticeable tannins, good freshness and balance. These wines have been harvested earlier and earlier to achieve lower alcohol and more acidity, to make them more drinkable. This is a perfect example of it. 2016 was a short vintage because of mildew, and most of the vineyards delivered around 50% of their normal yields. This wine is no exception. Even if accessible and destined for the short term, they can be surprisingly long lived. Great value.
