    "Located in a cooler part of Valtuille, El Rapolao is a vineyard that is bottled by a number of different producers, mostly from the circle of influence of Raúl Pérez. The 2015 Valtuille El Rapolao fermented with full clusters in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in well-seasoned, neutral 500-liter oak barrels. As with all old vineyards, the Mencía is interplanted with other varieties, like Estaladiña, Garnacha Tintorera and Souson, which might add to the tension the wine has, something that is especially remarkable in a warm and dry year like 2015. The palate has power and very good freshness, more elegant and with less rusticity despite its earthy touch. 2015 yielded well and there are some 1,700 bottles of it."
